Dr. Ravi Modani, President, TiE Rajasthan said that teams work in tandem to achieve goals, targets, mission and what better way than sports to align them into this. This was evident, when the players put all their sweat and energies, both mental and physical to make sure that there team wins, which is like preserving the honour of their company.

He further added that since the auction program, besides practicing together for the TSPL box cricket league, the startups and their team owners did multiple meetings off the cricket ground and discussed business synergies. We have started seeing some early results as well. Two startups have offered their team owners equity against business mentoring. On the other hand, one of the participating startup linked performance appraisal for it’s team members with their performance in TSPL, he said.

Not only the founders and large business but even the employees of different companies are exchanging ideas and learnings of their business domains. TiE Rajasthan is considering taking TSPL to the next level and making it an annual activity. TSPL aimed for much more than cricket and we are happy that we could provide these startups with opportunities to network with large businesses, mentors and investors, he added.
