Lakshmi Narayanan, CTS CEO to Creating Entrepreneurs

The  Chennai chapter of global entrepreneurship driving organisation The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) will focus on encouraging business ideation and the spirit of enterprise in non-IT sectors, Lakshmi Narayanan, vice chairman of Cognizant Technologies and the new TiE Chennai president said on Tuesday.

Addressing a press meet after taking over reins from outgoing president R. Ramaraj, Mr. Narayanan said one of the first tasks would be to dispel the notion about the TiE, which was founded in Silicon Valley, being an organisation focused on fostering entrepreneurship in the IT/BPO sectors.

Membership expansion and taking it (TiE) beyond the IT and BPO sectors will be a key area of focus apart from reinforcing the mentoring mechanism, Mr. Narayanan said.
