About Indian Professionals Network (IPN) Indian Professionals Network (IPN) was originally founded in 1993 by Narsi Narasimhan. After holding monthly meetings for more than 12 years, it was put on hold since there are other excellent professional networking opportunities offered in Atlanta by GIACC, NetIP-Atlanta and TiE-Atlanta. To fill a void in the community, we are back.
