Felt honoured to be invited as a Chief Guest to the TYE Summer Grand Finale 2018. Was pleasantly surprised to listen to the young entrepreneurs presenting and defending their ideas. The start-up scene is coming of age around the world but what Hyderabad is doing is something else. If this continues I can see it becoming one of the genius cities like Athens, Florence, Bay Area in times to come.

In his address after giving away the awards Chief Guest Xavier Augustin the Founder & CEO of Y-Axis Overseas lauded TiE Hyderabad to pull the event of such a magnitude in the most happening place in the world Hyderabad. He appreciated the way schools and parents are encouraging the entrepreneurial spirit in kids.

With such programs we must encourage the next generation with the skills necessary to face the challenges and create simpler solutions rather than worrying about problems.
