It is one brand that has kept growing at an exponential pace and is today the second largest conclave or assembly of entrepreneurs in South India and the largest ever for TamilNadu. In the words of Lakshmi Narayan, President, TiE-Chennai, “For this edition, we have spent enormous effort and time in ensuring the topics are of real interest to the broader ecosystem of entrepreneurs.
Therefore, there is more interactivity and engagement and continuation of successful, and popular, initiatives such as the business plan contest, Pitch to VC and the Unconference sessions which are larger and packaged even better. The theme marrying opportunity and innovation that drives growth and profits lends itself to the need of businesses today across sectors.”
The speaker line-up is simply one of the best any Chennai event has seen – Kiran Mazumdar Shaw of Biocon, Ashok Soota of Happiest Minds, Dr. Sumantran of Ashok Leyland/Nissan, Marc Llistosella of Daimler Commercial Vehicles, Lakshmi Pratury of TED, Mahadevan of Oriental Cuisines, Ananya Bubna of Sosasta.com, Lakshmi Nambiar of Avendus Capital Advisors, Phanindra Sama of RedBus and Vamshi Reddy of Apalya Technologies etc. to name a few.
Last year the venue was overflowing and we expect this year to be no different with close to 1500 entrepreneurs, business students and service providers expected to attend.
By the way we have not spoken of the biggest draw of any TIECON Chennai edition – the annual awards given away across 8 categories. And the reason is because there is something we are planning on the same and all we can say is – be glued to this space.
The venue remains the same (Chennai Trade Center) and the date is November 24, 2011. See you!!!!
