Your conversation with Dr. Anand Deshpande, Founder & Chairman of Persistent Systems.

Facilitated by Jassi Chadha, Serial entrepreneur, President & CEO of AXTRIA

Dear Members, 


Now the challenge.


What will it take?

Is Capital the active constraint -- is capital all that is required?

Will it take a change in mindset?

Will it take a mentor or coach?

Will a Board help -- should the Board have outside directors?  How can you leverage the Board?

How do you differentiate your Company?

What kind of leadership will it take from you?  How do you form the right leadership team? 

When should the Founder hand over the reins as CEO (as Anand has done)

I invite you to engage in a conversation with a unique entrepreneur, billionaire Dr. Anand Deshpande, Founder & Chairman of Persistent Systems, a listed Company that grew revenues 44% in the latest quarter. The conversation will be facilitated by our very own Charter Member Jassi Chadha, a serial entrepreneur, President & CEO of Axtria. Jassi has also served as President of TiE New Jersey and as a member of the Global Board of TiE.

Come join what promises to be a stimulating conversation!
