Hello POCC Members,

My name is Vikas Nandwana. I run a web startup from Rajasthan but I am connected with a lot of POCC members. I am planning to expand my base to Maharashtra. I have a meeting in Mumbai on 18 September so would be also attending POCC meeting this saturyday (first time). Hence would like to take this opportunity to meet all pune entrepreneurs to make a strong network there.

I am also looking to invest in a startup which is working in an education sector. So guys if you are looking for some funding, you are very welcome to meet me and we can discuss further. We can meet before the POCC meeting since I have to leave again for mumbai after 7.00 PM.

Vikas Nandwana
CEO & Founder

My background: BTech. from IIT Bombay and MS/PhD from University of Texas, USA. I have worked in Texas Instruments for 2 years before coming back to India in May 2009. Then I launched my startup and we are mainly working in education sector.
