Ms. Shalini has often advocated the view that more graduating students of Acharya should turn into job creators through entrepreneurship. To this end, she has been instrumental in the creation of Acharya Institutes Technology Business Incubator, with the key objective of creating a platform and an ecosystem in the institution for budding entrepreneurs to come up with innovative business ideas. She has a great track record of establishing, nurturing and mentoring successful businesses and a strong financial bandwidth that has made her to consider extending her support to the startup ecosystem in India. She is a strategic thinker with good business acumen and wishes to use these to benefit startups. With this background and intent, membership of a network like IAN would help her in extending her network, positioning herself in the startup ecosystem and also in gaining exposure to the great breadth of business ideas that IAN invites.
