It's a little over a week left for the 3rd edition of VCCircle Chennai Investment Summit 2015 on March 12 at Hyatt Regency, Chennai.

Tamil Nadu in general and Chennai in particular has been vying for the top spot as an entrepreneur destination among southern capitals. The state has been a breeding ground for several cutting edge startups and companies in areas such as technology, consumer internet, big data and analytics, healthcare, shared services or non-technology plays like manufacturing and financial services.

The state has bred several high profile entrepreneurs too who have made a mark in the national stage.

As part of VCCircle's mission to create knowledge forums for entrepreneurs and investors across the breadth and width of the nation, it has been conducting conferences in several state capitals and Tier I cities such as Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Pune and Hyderabad since 2008. After all, entrepreneurship is not limited to Bengaluru, Delhi and Mumbai.

This is the third time, VCCircle is organising its successful state forum in Chennai to bring together the entrepreneurs, investors, bankers and the others in the startup and investing ecosystem.
