Vijay Anand, vice president (new ventures), Rural Technology and Business Incubator, at IIT-Madras, is the man behind incubating new ideas for rural India. He is also called 'the start-up guy', having started his own company as a student in Canada. He is now trying to bring in a start-up revolution in India. Proto.in, an event he used to organise for a while from 2006, to bring in new start-ups under one umbrella, is the best example of his commitment to start-ups. It was this commitment that won him the Nasscom Ecosystem Evangelist Award. According to Vijay Anand, he lives a 'double life': one as the vice president of RTBI, and another as the man behind Proto.in and start-ups. In this exclusive interview, he talks about both his work at RTBI and also the start-up scenario in India.
