Prasanna Vinjamuri / ’93 ME

“I firmly believe that IITMAANA is creating a new value for the ‘IIT education’ - the power of our network. The value of our IIT education has the potential to increase significantly with networking. Today, many of us seem to network only with our fellow batchmates and maybe hostelmates. I am passionate about creating new and meaningful ways for my fellow alumni to tap into the network of 7,800+ IIT Madras alumni, and the larger 30,000 from all IITs across North America to grow personally and professionally.”
