The conference also features a series of Bootcamps, VC (Venture Capitalist) Connect, and Mentor Connect sessions, creating a complete entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Kumar Sripadam, Co-Convenor, TiEcon 2020, said, “The entrepreneurship journey begins when individuals from diverse technologies and geographies converge around an idea. It becomes a reality when they create a product, solution, or service and subsequently elevate it to its fullest potential to deliver economic outcomes. I congratulate the TiEcon staff and crew members, for putting such a stellar line of speakers and managing to create a fully virtual event during this pandemic. I am sure the attendees will find tremendous value and knowledge to take away from the sessions.”
