In spite of teams emerging as the fundamental organizing structure for achieving tasks in the recent times; the concept of team engagement has received only limited attention as compared to individual level engagement and much more in the context of start-ups in India. Since the psychological processes that operate in individual-level phenomena do not always generalize to the team level of analysis, it becomes imperative to study the dynamics of teams in order to build upon the concept of team engagement in new ventures. This paper reviews literature on engagement; assesses the paradigm shift from individual to team and builds upon a conceptual framework, keeping in mind the start-up organizations operating in the Indian context. We comprehensively look into extant research on the concept of engagement at the individual level and propose a conceptual framework for engagement at the team level.
