Some great keynotes

– Vinod Dham spoke about the enthusiasm in indian entrepreneurs. I think the highlight was outlining how the Nevis announcement illustrates the high quality of work that can be done in India – coming from Vinod, people listen

Dr Bala Manian – my pick of the day – serially successful entrepreneur in life sciences – easily the sharpest view I have heard of the potential of low cost labour – rather than taking the process and applying low cost labour, turn it on its head so that the process is designed with the fundamental assumption of labour efficiency (including tradeoffs of labour with other factors of production) – I’ll bet on this guy, easily the pick

– Pramod Bhasin talked about moving up the value chain

– Kiran Shaw started with an introduction to biotech, and that’s when I left
