Business Opportunities in the New Millennium
R S Shankar in Cerritos, California
A slew of big-time entrepreneurs and academics, including Naveen Jain, C K Prahlad and Tej Sidhu will address the TiEcon'99 conference here.
'Entrepreneurship in the New Millennium' will be of interest to early-stage entrepreneurs and established businesses and the contents are designed so as to address issues relevant to them. Attendees are primarily entrepreneurs and professionals from start-up companies, but range from individuals who are new to entrepreneurship, to companies that are already shipping products. Therefore, the Conference is organized into the following two parallel tracks that cover both basic material and select topics in depth.
The event is slated at Sheraton Hotel on October 23.
The second annual conference organized by TiE Southern California, it offers the experiences of successful entrepreneurs and professionals who have volunteered their time for aspiring entrepreneurs. In addition, this conference provides an opportunity for peer-to-peer networking.
