Banyan Tree Talk : Be A Dreamer Who Does: 07 August, 2009 – 06:00 pm

 Banyan Tree Talk : Be A Dreamer Who Does

ThoughtWorks Bangalore invites you to a Banyan Tree talk by Bringi Dev. Intrapreneurs are “dreamers who do”, those who take hands-on responsibility for creating innovation of any kind within an organization. The concept of intrapreneurship has taken root in corporations in the course of the last two decades as a way of providing mutual fulfillment of both individual as well as corporate needs to accelerate innovation and drive decentralized growth.

This interactive discussion will cover the concept of intrapreneurship and how its clearly different from the better-known concept of entrepreneurship. While doing so, the session will seek to educate participants about how intrapreneurship can enhance their work lives and make their careers more successful while being more satisfying as well as enjoyable. And, at the same time, how the organization that one works for will benefit, thereby creating a virtuous cycle of mutual growth and reward.

Using minimal formal presentation tools, the speaker will share his experience as a corporate intrapreneur, and answer questions that the audience might have.

Half of the year 2009 has gone by and a lot has happened and expected to
happen in the Telecom space – Especially in India, with the imminent onset
of 3G and Wimax. What do such services hold as promise for the User ? What
kind of growth one may expect considering that India is already nudging
~400 million subscribers ? Will we see a churn of existing data
subscribers moving to embrace 3G ? Will 3G and Wimax be the cataclysmic
occurance that pushes INDIA into an orbit to achieve greater than 50%
teledensity ? And, what are Applicaiton Developers thinking ? What are the
available platforms to leverage ?

To seek answers to many such questions – Mobile Monday Bangalore has put
together an exciting half day event comprising a Panel Discussion on the
topic: “3G in India – A status check”

The program is planned for the Saturday, 25th of July at the Indian
Institute of Management, Bangalore. The schedule is as follows:
10:30 AM – Panel Discussion; “3G in India – A status check”
11:45 AM – Tea Break
