"Participating in several pitch competitions as a student opened many opportunities for me including my current position at AstraZeneca. The experience, exposure, learning, and network that comes along with such events played a critical role in shaping my entrepreneurial mindset and helped me co-found a company in India.  As a Charter Member of TiE Boston, I am excited to support the TiE University initiative and help bring this opportunity to several students."
