Equitus Innovation founder Raam Shankar has been named co-chair of TiE Global’s Sustainability and Impact Special Interest Group (SIG).
TiE Global, one of the world’s largest entrepreneurs networks, has chapters in numerous cities and regions across the world and has been fostering entrepreneurship for over 30 years.
Raam will help magnify the message around sustainability on a worldwide stage.
It comes after the leader of Equitus, which has bases in Manchester, London and Bangalore, became President of TiE UK North earlier in 2023.
He said: “Sustainability is a key component of innovation in this day and age.
“This SIG aims to promote sustainability, sustainable practices while creating a positive impact across the entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystems it operates in.
“For a business leader in the north west to be invited to be a co-chair on a sustainability initiative at a global scale is a pleasure and a privilege.”
