About this event

Rajat Mishra, VP of Cisco, who joined us last year will be joining us again this October. This time his wife, Deepti Juturu, CEO of PREZENTIUM, will be joining us too. You don't want to miss this powerhouse couple as they share advice about balancing work and family, working together as partners, the difference between starting a business as an entrepreneur versus working for a multi-national and much more.

Both partners have been recognized on 40 under 40 lists.

We will be starting a little earlier than normal to allow time for both speakers to share their wisdom. The event will take place at Gloria Ferrer on Thursday, October 18 from 5:30 until 8:00.
