Join TiE Austin for what promises to be an eye-opening webinar with

Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw on July 29, 2020, at 10 am (US CDT) / 8:30 pm (IST)

moderated by a successful and respected entrepreneur and investor

Kerry Rupp, General Partner, True Wealth Ventures.

Today corporations must practice a capitalism that is more humane and compassionate, as well as just and fair. On the other hand, there are those - and these may still be in the majority - who hold the traditional view that “the business of business is business” and nothing else.

Kerry will have an insightful conversation with Kiran about –

·      The role of capitalism in a changing world.

·      What does Kiran mean by Compassionate Capitalism and how should it be put in practice?

·      Examples of Compassionate Capitalism done right?

·       Kiran’s bedrock principles for running her company.

·      How do you balance empathy & community support with profits and business growth?

Kerry’s own experience as an investor focusing on women-led ventures will be an added dimension to the discussion.

A self-made billionaire - a first for a woman in India - Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw, follows a different model which combines a social worker’s empathy with a chief executive’s mindset. She calls her approach “Compassionate Capitalism”: using proven business strategies to build a durable foundation for sustainable social development.

Kiran is a highly respected businesswoman and a global thought-leader in Biotechnology.

As the EY World Entrepreneur of the Year 2020, Kiran is a global influence. She has been consistently ranked among the most consequential business personalities in the world by, among others, Forbes, Fortune, Time and Foreign Policy magazines.

She has also been recognized by the Government of India with one of its highest civilian honors – the Padma Bhushan.

She serves as a full-term member of the Board of Trustees of The MIT Corporation, USA.

Kerry Rupp is a General Partner at True Wealth Ventures, an early-stage venture capital fund investing in women-led businesses in consumer health & sustainability. She is an active startup coach and a nationally certified instructor for the National Science Foundation’s Innovation Corps (I-Corps) program, helping university-based teams to commercialize their science and technology research. An entrepreneur herself, she led DreamIt, an accelerator and VC fund to among the Top 10 in the US. Earlier she had founded Holiday Golightly, a group travel service for women.
