Recently, COVID-19 has spread over more than 210 countries, infecting beyond 2 million people, with more than 1,37,000 fatalities. As we know, India has a soaring population density combined with poor hygiene standards and also deprived health infrastructure, which makes it more prone to the pandemic. There are many questions yet to be answered. Some of them are- What would be the para11e1 solution to the livelihood crisis? How the activities can be boosted up for entrepreneurs? Even the economists warn that an extended lockdown would cause even more havoc to employment, the economy, and livelihood, the dilemma is whether to save people or livelihood. From time to time, NITI Aayog Govt. of India gave a much convincing statement that “India should improve its disaster management preparation and ensure the availability of resources so that the country doesn’t have to choose options among the people, life, and livelihood”. We can understand that the COVID-19 pandemic is the defining global crisis of the present time and the greatest global humanitarian challenge for a livelihood the world has ever faced. The hiccuping business is declining the entrepreneur’s motivations. The government is taking measures and started PM Garib Kalyan and Atma-Nirbhar Schemes. Keeping in view of the present scenario, India has moved promptly, implementing a proactive, nationwide unlocking. However, the migration of the unorganized sector laborers has drawn our attention to urgent inclusive growth necessities. Innovation, research, science, and technology will form the pillars of a knowledge-based, highly productive, and competitive economy, driven by entrepreneurs and leaders in a business-friendly environment where public and private sectors form effective partnerships. In this context, the seminar proposes to highlight the challenges of entrepreneurs in the current scenario and identify innovation that can be adopted in the global context to build up a conceptual and practical understanding of ‘new normal’ for sustaining MSMEs and other enterprises, foster employment and economy in the current scenario.
