New Delhi: Rajan Anandan, vice president, South East Asia and India, Google, on Wednesday took an additional responsibility of the Delhi-NCR Chapter of The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE Delhi-NCR) as its president to nurture the Indian start-up ecosystem.
In his current role, Mr Anandan would spearhead TiE Delhi-NCR's initiatives through mentoring, networking and education, funding and incubation.
Mr Anandan takes over from Pramod Bhasin, founder of Clix Capital, after his successful two-year stint as the president at TiE Delhi-NCR - a non-profit organisation dedicated to fostering entrepreneurship.
"TiE Delhi- NCR is the largest, among the most active and highly rewarded chapter of TiE. It has taken huge strides in nurturing and transforming Delhi-NCR's start-up spirit with marquee programmes bridging the gap of networking, funding and mentoring," said Mr Anandan.
"While I've been actively involved in the start-up ecosystem, I am eagerly looking forward to my new role in a year where TiE's biggest event - TiE 'Global Summit'is coming to town on November 29 and 30," Mr Anandan added.
With an industry experience spanning over two decades, Mr Anandan has an in-depth understanding of the start-up economy, having enabled diverse sectors with his mentorship and investments.
His prior associations include Microsoft India, Dell India and McKinsey & Company.
"Rajan's first-hand experience of working closely with the founding teams of start-ups as an investor would be providing a huge fillip to TiE Delhi-NCR," said Geetika Dayal, executive director of TiE Delhi-NCR.
