Indian-American on team to flag Twitter questions for Obama

July 07, 2011 11:24 IST
Indian-American professor Raman Chadha was among the eight-member team which helped flag questions for United States President Barack Obama, as he held the first ever Twitter town hall at the White House.

During the period when Obama held the Twitter Town Hall at the White House on Wednesday, Chadha along with seven others was busy rewetting interesting questions and flagging them for the US President. Most of his retweets were on economy and job.

"Honor to be involved, I learned a lot, and had fun," tweeted Chadha, who works at the prestigious DePaul University's Coleman Entrepreneurship Center, after the conclusion of the town hall.

"After an uncomfortable career in the corporate world and getting an MBA in entrepreneurship, Raman found his life's calling," says a bio of him posted on the website of the DePaul University. In 1995, he started a consulting firm focused on strategic planning and growth management, working with over 200 clients from start-up to USD 15 million in revenues.

He joined DePaul in 2002 as an adjunct professor, and then helped launch the Coleman Entrepreneurship Center a year later. Since then, he has helped guide the Center's strategic direction, develop its programs, and build the spokes of its community. He continues to teach in DePaul's highly-ranked entrepreneurship programme, bringing his experience, energy, and enthusiasm to the classroom.

Chadha earned an MBA in Entrepreneurship and Marketing from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, and a BA in Economics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Outside of entrepreneurship and his family, Chadha's interests include baseball, beer brewing, the outdoors, southern BBQ and indie rock.
