Before TiE finally had an official ED; Jayashree Patil, Neera Gupta and late Hem Joshi were the volunteers that constituted the TiE back office.
It was a chaotic time. Answering people calling to join TiE, monthly meeting registeration work, keeping up the database and answering the emails. All this worked because Jayashree, Neera and Hem showed up at the TiE office every day. Keeping the TiE ofice functioning was a full time job for them!
