Open Coffee Club Meet - Aug 7th

The OpenCoffee Club was started to encourage entrepreneurs, developers and investors to organise real-world informal meetups to chat, network and grow. Started in London and now around the world, OpenCoffee Club is a regular, open and informal meeting place for people involved in startups to meet.

This Month, We have Anil Srinivasan - Managing Director of Music Univ India.

About Music Univ India:

MusicUniv was created in 2010 to take the classical arts to schoolchildren. By creating a structured, systematic and graded syllabus for classical music or art, the mission works on the premise that the child absorbs more effectively in a group setting with his/her peers. Further, we also believe that musical intelligence (Howard Gardner, 1983) gets better integrated within the scope and context of the other disciplines the child is exposed to at school.

About the Speaker:

Anil Srinivasan holds an MBA (University of Southern California) and an M Phil from Columbia Business School. An accomplished Western Classical pianist (www.anilsrinivasan.com) who was awarded the coveted Sangeet Natak Akademi award for the youth, a national award, last year for creative and experimental music, he has already worked with some of the legends in Indian classical music such as Mandolin Shrinivas, Aruna Sairam, Unnikrishnan and others. His active involvement in music has seen him across nearly 500 performances both in India and abroad. He has been a TED INDIA speaker, chaired conferences on music in venues as diverse as Liverpool Hope University and the University of Mumbai and is a regular columnist with the Indian Express on music. He has previously worked in research and analytics at Taylor Nelson Sofres and subsequently in consultative capacities on consumer-based analytics across sectors. In 2010, he co-founded MusicUniv India (www.musicuniv.com), an initiative to take the classical arts through structured, systematic syllabi delivered through schools using a combination of physical classroom learning and using technology (using a first-ever made-to-order learning management system for classical arts training).
