Program Details


You are invited to an exclusive opportunity to a fireside chat with a distinguished IIT alum, Alok Mohan. Alok's brief bio is attached below. The purpose of this Q&A type session is to provide an opportunity to our Bay Area alumni to discuss entrepreneurship and corporate career issues in an intimate setting. Alok has played key roles in the corporate world and then as an entrepreneur. In addition, for past several years, Alok has been advising many companies as a board member. He will talk about lessons learnt and what he wished he had known earlier in life. The format is an open setting and will provide our alumni to hear insights from Alok. To make the event very interactive, we are limiting seating to the first 15 alumni who register.

We request that you submit two or three questions for Alok, as you register for the event. This will help with the discussion during the chat.
