In this much-awaited episode of The Corner Office Conversations, we feature Padmaja Ruparel, a name that echoes loud in the Indian startup fraternity and in the halls that draw up lists of India’s most powerful women. She is among the 'Top 50 Most Powerful Women in Business' by Fortune India and among the ‘30 Most Powerful Women in India’ by Business Today. She is Co-Founder at Indian Angel Network (IAN), India’s first and now possibly one of the world’s largest angel networks with around 500 investors.
