About CBI

ISB's Centre for Business Innovation (CBI) is a research centre established to foster rigorous and relevant research and education on Business Innovation and Growth across varied sectors and industries. The Centre combines years of knowledge, experience, and practice in business innovation to advance and create a truly sustainable value.

At CBI, we believe that innovation is the mainstay of socio-economic and environmental advancement in today's volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world.

The Centre is focused on conducting intensive research on tools, structures, policies, models, mechanisms, and challenges to drive innovation across corporate, academic, and government ecosystems in Asia. It also aims to bring together eminent scholars and leading innovators from the world's most prominent organizations to create a unified platform for scientific research and progressive collaborations.

CBI aims to contribute to research on various aspects of business innovation increasingly. Helmed by Professor Rajendra Srivastava, CBI's primary goal is to blend theory and practice to create a hyper-active research and learning community of innovation practitioners, entrepreneurs, funders, policy-makers, and technologists. We intend to create a sustainable ecosystem of true value creation in innovation through research, outreach, and education activities.
