The Indus Entrepreneur Inflect Event
The Indus Entrepreneur (TiE) hosts an annual conference in Silicon Valley and this year Krishna Vedula and Claire Komives attended the event to meet many people working in the area.  IUCEE sponsored a booth at the TiE Inflect event and in two days over 100 people engaged and learned about the activities of IUCEE in India.  About half of the people who stopped by were from California but others came from other parts of the US and also many from India.  Krishna and Claire gave ideas about how they could help IUCEE by giving a webinar, developing a short course on an emerging technology or by visiting a college when they return to India.  Krishna also attended some of the presentations and one of the key take-away messages was the need for graduating engineers to be able to identify a problem. This reinforced the value of the EPICS programs we currently have underway in India.
