The SVCE ALUMNI PROCONNECT Network was formed to enable our alumni entrepreneurs and professionals to connect with each other, share knowledge and networks. It is also a good opportunity to interact with student entrepreneurs of SVCE.

To kick start the initiative, the ProConnect committee organized a “Twitter 101 Personal Branding” learning session. Learning served as a catalyst for alumni networking. Mr. Dorai Thodla, an entrepreneur and tech mentor, conducted this session on the 28th of April.

15 Alumni entrepreneurs and professionals attended the 1.5 hour session and left yearning for more. The session started with the basics of twitter branding and was then opened up for specific questions from the attendees, who ranged from 1996 to 2015 (graduation year).

Buoyed by this success, we intend to continue the learning series. The next sessions will be on:
“HR: Campus recruitment for Dummies” by Gokul Visveswaran
“Frugal marketing strategies” by Pravin Shekar
“Company/Personal: Linkedin Optimization by Dorai Thodla”
“The Startup/Funding scene right now” by Anand Daniel
“Management lessons from movies” by Gokul Santhanam

The aim of the #ProConnect initiative is to form an initial working group of 100 alumni entrepreneurs and professionals by December 2018. All registered alumni shall contribute towards our mutual learning and networking initiative. In due course, we shall plan for webinars and sessions in other cities.
