Seth Godin's coming & the Acumen Fund is looking.


OK! We'll make this quick; there are 2 things we'd like to bring to your attention:

1) Seth Godin is coming to India and will be speaking at ISB, Hyderabad on July 7, 2010. Details are here. If you can make it, you should! Who's Seth Godin? You really should check out some of his books (if you're in India, here's a link from Flipkart)

2) He's coming to India to generate awareness for the Acumen Fund. More specifically, for the fact that the fund is looking for an India director. If you know someone who might be interested, do ask them to check out Acumen's requirement. Needless to say, it's a great job! Perhaps, YOUR dream job?

Seth is pretty vocal in his support for the Acumen Fund. Interestingly, most of the 'technorati' in the US - from Michael Arrington of Techcrunch to Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures - all have their favorite causes and non profits. Once we launch, we hope to find similar favor amongst India's technorati, for starters!

When are we launching? What's been happening? Look out for a blog post later this week that will reveal all!
