About this event

Small cities & towns are rapidly evolving into significant start-up hubs in India. However, the start-ups from these centres lack many advantages that are available to their counterparts based at metros. This initiative enables entrepreneurs from Tier II eco-system direct access to mentors, virtual workshops, investors, partners and brand promotion opportunities.

SG Madurai Chapter is hosting Mr N Neethiraj, for this special event.

Mr. Neethiraj is a Mechanical Engineer from PSG Tech, with MBA from NMIMS. He also holds International Business Degree from IIM, Ahmedabad. Currently, a Board Member heading the chemicals division and also managing the finance and projects of the group.

We will discuss:

+ His experience in his rising in the corporate ladder

+ Tier II Start-up Eco-system:

+ Identifying the Opportunities

+ Challenges and Solutions

+ Suggestions to improve the Tier II entrepreneurial eco-system

The above will be followed by a brief Q & A session
