India has realised, later than many other nations, that in order to prosper in the new world economy it will need to successfully manage its knowledge assets. This book investigates the rise of entrepreneurship and knowledge management. It looks at the high tech sector, how it is at present and it's prospects for growth. It then goes onto analyse the effect that the knowledge economy will have on labour, business strategy and corporate restructuring and highlights the challenges that India will face, not least whether it can offer enough employment potential for 1 billion people.
