CALIF: Will the next big idea come from Bangalore or Shanghai, not Silicon Valley? Emerging hubs for innovation is just one of the topics covered at the third annual Sangam conference, on Sunday, October 10 at UC Berkeley’s International House.
Titled “Succeeding in a Global Economy,” the conference is presented by Berkeley MBA students in the Haas School’s South Asia Club and features panel discussions on leadership and innovation. Some of the participating business leaders are Prem Jain, a senior vice president with Cisco; Raj Jaswa, president-elect of The Indus Entrepreneurs/Talent, Ideas and Enterprise (TiE), which is also a partner in the event, and co-founder of Selectica; Anita Manwani, general manager of Global Sourcing and vice president of India Operations for Agilent Technologies; and Jerry Engel, Professor & Executive Director, Lester Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Haas School of Business. Irv Remedios, MBA 05, and conference co-chair, explains that “Sangam” means confluence, and says, “Sangam 2004 is a confluence of ideas, focused on the changing economic environment in South Asia and its impact on business professionals worldwide.”

A portion of the proceeds from Sangam 2004 will benefit Amar Seva Sangam (ASSA), an organization dedicated to empowering the disabled in India, and American India Fund (AIF), devoted to accelerating social and economic change in India.
Last year’s Sangam conference sold out, so early registration is recommended. Sangam 2004 takes place from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 10, in the Chevron Auditorium at International House. For more information and to register online, visit
