Our Past Speakers

"I spent a lot of time with startups and it was very exciting. A lot of them have actually created very good products, in fact they are at a stage where they are going to launch the product or they are getting into the first stages of revenue. I am very impressed at the work being done here."


Ajai Chowdhry

Founder, HCL

"I found the ecosystem in Hubli fascinating, I’d come here a few years ago and when I came here and saw what was happening, I was astounded. I did not expect this to be so very large, so very effective, so very impactful on people’s lives. It’s possibly the most modern, biggest, and most impactful ecosystem created by anyone in India’s history, in any district and any place. I think it’s unbelievable."


T. V. Mohandas Pai

Chairman, Manipal Global Education

"With what the foundation is doing here, I think the disadvantages of entrepreneurship is lowered because there’s a huge amount of opportunity, and support which the entrepreneurs are getting in a Tier II city like Hubli. I wish all the entrepreneurs and the foundation a lot of success moving forward."
