Politicians, technocrats to address TiE event
J M Shenoy
Given I K Gujral's Left-leaning politics, he may not be the right person to address a business group, but the Southern California chapter of The Indus Entrepreneurs believe that the former Indian prime minister could offer some interesting perspectives about investment climate in India.
Gujral will address TiE on March 15 at the Cerritos Sheraton.
But the star of the evening is Professor Amar Bhidé, the Harvard Business School professor, who addressed TiE's Chicago chapter recently.
The Nature of Promising Start-ups is the subject of Professor Bhidé's talk. He currently teaches entrepreneurship at the University of Chicago as a visiting associate professor. He is the author of The Origin and Evolution of New Businesses, which Inc magazine called the 'One book to read to create a successful start-up.'
It is based on a 10-year study that he conducted at Harvard that figures out what differentiates a successful start-up from the ones that don't succeed.
A week later, on March 22, the New York chapter of TiE is holding a Business Plan Critique at the Yale Club in NYC.
The panelists will include Rohit Singh (McKinsey), Sanjiv Nathwani (Diamond Technology Partners), Seema Chetal (CitiCorp Investments), and James DeCarlo (Stroock & Stroock & Lavan).
The panel will evaluate attendee business plans that are selected by a pre-assigned selection committee. To be considered the plans must be submitted to email@example.com by 5 pm on March 10.
The selected entrepreneurs will be contacted one week prior to the event. TIE-NY will not sign non-disclosure agreements.
