November 11-12, 2013
This year's TIECON will be held at Hotel Leela Palace over November 11 evening (Awards Function) and Nov 12 (conference).
On Nov 11 evening, we will kick off with a crisp and highly motivating Awards function, followed by networking over cocktails and dinner. Dr Pratap Reddy will deliver a keynote address and Dr Badrinarayan will give away the awards to an exciting set of entrepreneurs in ten different categories. Not only will you have the opportunity to meet and network with the who's who of Chennai's entrepreneurial ecosystem, but there will be great music and entertainment throughout the evening.
On Nov 12, we have assembled a dazzling array of speakers and panelists, supported during intermissions by music and entertainment. We have also addressed previous years feedback to incorporate more audience interaction time in every session, and to provide structured networking opportunities.
Listen to Vijay Amritraj tell us how he remade his career several times - from sportsman to commentator to actor to entertainment business entrepreneur and philanthropist - all through the sheer power of self belief. Hear people like Marc Listosella of Daimler India, Mittu Chandilya of Air Asia, Shyam Kumar of Puthiya Thalaimurai, Dhanjayan, CEO UTV Disney talk about building and scaling large businesses through innovation, quality and process.
C. Kumaravel of the Naturals beauty chain, Charan Padmaraju, co-founder of Redbus and Dr Kishore Kumar of Cloudnine will interact with you on what it takes to go from scratch to scale. Anupam Pahuja, CEO of PayPal India, Rajiv Subramaniam, founder of the Ovenfresh chain of fast food outlets, Ravi Sundaram founder of Herbalife, the alternative medicine retail chain, and Padmasingh Isaac founder of Aachi Masala will interact with you on how to build brand in a crowded marketplace.
And of course, we have not forgotten the challenge of funding. VCs from across the country will address the questions of whether, when, how to raise funding. We also offer a different twist this year - understanding how young scions of prominent business families such as V Sriram of the TVS family, Jayasri Ravi of the Nalli family, Vedant Jhaver of the Jhaver family address the challenges of striking out in new directions away from their inherited legacy businesses.
Finally, there is a unique opportunity to network in an organized manner with the top people in verticals such as IT, Healthcare, Big Data, etc in specially designated meeting rooms.
