New Delhi, July 18 (IANS) Rajan Anandan, Vice President, South East Asia and India, Google, on Wednesday took an additional responsibility of the Delhi-NCR Chapter of The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE Delhi-NCR) as its President to nurture the Indian start-up ecosystem.

In his current role, Anandan would spearhead TiE Delhi-NCR’s initiatives through mentoring, networking and education, funding and incubation.
