She said that Larry Ellison (founder) of Oracle saw the potential of intellectual ability in India very early and it was Larry who said, “I don't just want to put a back office, I want the whole life cycle of products, not just the end but the beginning, the design, the built, the maintain and the enhance — all in India”.
Ms. Catz also said that she was particularly impressed with the Indian PM Modi’s speech at Silicon Valley, and that speech made her realize the potential of Digital India and the massive opportunity for improvement and the fact that technology was going to enable a more prosperous India and actually a more prosperous planet.
Ms. Catz is among the highest paid women in the world and her advice to working women is "Keep working, don't give up and don't take it personally". She will also be meeting the Indian PM Modi at the end of the week.
