SLP has one of the many things that has been keeping me busy over the past year. The Startup Leadership Program (SLP) is an initiative to groom the next-generation of startup CEOs. SLP fellows are in their mid-20s to 30s and have demonstrated outstanding potential and achievement in the life sciences, tech, cleantech, and social sectors. Graduates form an international alumni network to support each other’s entrepreneurial endeavors.
SLP initially started out in Boston under TiE Boston and has now grown to six cities including Silicon Valley, New York, Beijing, New Delhi, San Diego.
Me along with a BITS Alumni, Sudip Dutta, CEO of Aporv.in help run the Bangalore chapter of SLP. We are looking for leaders who can lead new chapters as well as take up existing ones. More details follow

Been almost a year since I have posted to this blog. Oh boy, it’s been a hectic 2010 but 2011 is getting even better. Of course there is no excuse to have not posted. Social media seems to be taking its toll on me.
But it’s been an interesting and hectic year and a half working with one of the leading online travel startups in India helping them build some kickass products and working with an enthusiastic team. More updates on that and what I have learnt coming up soon. Life has changed and for the better it is!
To regular blogging! Cheers.
