When I like something nowadays, I keep saying “Super”. Super takes the spot along with “Awesome”, “Great” and “Cool”. I don’t know where or how I picked up this habit, but it seems to be here to stay.
There is another (slightly different) “Super” around the corner. It is TiE Chennai Super Saturday – an event I always look forward to. It is turning out to be really “Super”.
We received over 16 pitches and we are going to do about 10 of them (due to time constraints) in the morning PitchFest. We will have another session for the rest of the pitches, during the Unconference track. PitchFest is a bit unique. The Top 3 will get some cool sponsorships.
We are going to have an awesome session by Raghu Rajagopal. Raghu is a serial entrepreneur and a startup evangelist. He also runs an incubator. He runs several companies (not sure how he manages that) and interviews entrepreneurs for his column in Business Line. He is going to share with us a lot of the lessons of entrepreneurship – his own and the ones from the entrepreneurs he talks to. I am really looking forward to that session.
We also have one of the best minds of marketing teaching us Marketing 101. When I heard J K Iyer (popularly known among us as JK), I was simply blown away. He was a professor then.He is with Consim, now (http://www.consim.com/). His style of teaching is unique, informal and very conversational. I look forward to meeting him and eager to hear his views now that he is part of the industry.
We have an unconference session in the after-noon. I love this session because we hear the voice of the audience – YOU. These sessions are always full of surprises and lots of learning.
If you have not registered, please do so immediately. Look forward to seeing you there on Saturday (2nd).
