AIYD Alumni Bangalore Reunion
AIYD Alumni and Steering Committee members met in India’s innovation capital, Bangalore, on 14 July 2015.
Co-Founders of AIYD, Shaun Star (Chair) and Ruchir Punjabi (Former Chair) along with Vidyananda Sagaram (Director), hosted an alumni event which was attended by former AIYD delegates from each of the four previous conferences. During the evening, enthusiasm was building in light of the upcoming AIYD 2016 conference, which will be hosted in-part in Bangalore in late-January 2016. AIYD alums were engaged in various animated discussions, including exploring ways to collaborate on various projects in the Australia-India space under the auspices of the AIYD Alumni Grants Program.
This event provided an opportunity for some of the alumni to meet for the first time and discuss their experience at the dialogue. From 2015, the AIYD Steering Committee has made a commitment to ensure that AIYD Alumni events will be a regular fixture in the AIYD calendar.
