The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) Carolinas have postponed their next meeting, scheduled for Tuesday, until after the Holidays.

Swadesh Chatterjee, president of TiE Carolinas, said the meeting would be held sometime in January.

“The combination of previous holiday commitments along with the strong interest in our planned panel discussion ‘Outsourcing — Threat to Western society or its savior?’, made it a simple decision to make,” said Chatterjee. “Because of the debates that are raging about whether outsourcing is good or bad, and what impact it will have on the economy and society, this a topic that should be given serious time, effort and exposure to our membership.”

At the meeting will be Max Wallace, president of the Arbor Group and former CEO of Cogent Neuroscience. Wallace and Chatterjee just returned from a trip to India in which they met industry and political leaders, and toured top facilities. They will discuss what they learned.

Vivek Wadhwa, who has co-founded two area technology companies and still serves a chairman of Reletivity Technologies, will also speak. Wadhwa has been involved in outsourcing technology development since 1992.

The three speakers will discuss a range of issues related to outsourcing, such as the downsides and risks, the economic impact, and job losses vs. opportunity.

An exact date, time and place has not been set for the January 2004 meeting, but will be soon.
