TechnoparkToday.com>> August 1, 2014: Dr K C Chandrasekharan Nair CFO, Technopark Secretary & Registrar, Technopark TBI retired on July 31, 2014, on superannuation after a laudable service of 24 years.
One day in 1990 Mr G Vijayaraghavan, Mr K G Sateesh Kumar, Mr K Ramachandram and Dr K C Chandrasekharan Nair assembled in the room of then Special Secretary (Industries) to draw up a master plan for the materialization of a dream project i.e the creation of Technopark. This was a maiden venture in the history of Kerala which later revolutionized the growth of IT industry in the state of Kerala and created thousands of job opportunities at a time when lakhs of unemployed and educated youths were starving for a job. Later a vast area of land was bought from the University of Kerala at Kariyavattom and this land became the venue for the experiment. In the place of cashew nut trees new companies sprout up and took shape as the Technopark, the biggest IT park in the continent.
Behind this unbelievable success story of Technopark we can visibly see the hands Dr K C Chandrasekharan Nair. He shouldered many responsibilities successfully and worked hard tirelessly. Now Technopark is at the helm of glory and success.
At a time when the idea of incubation and entrepreneurship was not advocated Dr KCC showed the courage to initiate the idea of incubation in Technopark and thereby transforming hundreds of youngsters to successful entrepreneurs. He visited almost all the technical institutions in the state in search of talented young students with glowing ideas and brought them to the lime light and supported and guided them towards success. A wave of transformation swept the state through his initiatives and activities in creating a revolution in the field of startups in the state.
Now Kerala has become the most congenial destination for startups with more than 10 incubators and more than 2000 startups, which no other state in India has achieved.
Now Dr KCC stands as the entrepreneur of entrepreneurs through his successful service of 24 years to the state.
