Name our favorite ecosystem initiative

Wanted to get a sense of the audience – which ecosystem initiative do you find most useful. Is it the TiE mentoring, or nasscom emerge blog? or pluggdin events? or yourstory showcase? or medianama analysis?

And what are the gaps – specific ones? What specific service would prompt you to take 2 hours out and go attend?

    As I read recently Vivek Paul said India is yet to pick up the thread of Startups and he feels we Indians dont talk aloud our ideas.
    I firmly believe that there is enough of funding available at seed stage (IAN has lowered its bar, Nexus has announced micro investments)
    but an entrepreneur sitting in Ahmedabad is not able to find a cofounder from any part of india who is also thinking on the similar idea.
    The lack of ecosystem today is lack of entrepreneurs coming together.

    Summing up
    Nasscom emerge is for products which are almost ready.
    Medianama focus is not to much on organising events.
    Pluggd.in is on path of folding up entrepreneurs in its events.

    I think an objective website /database where people meet and than can meet offline .

    Nurture Talent Academy did some modest beginning by bringing aspiring entrepreneurs together in a meet.
    If this does not happen properly ,VC’s time will also get wasted when they are approached by individuals.
    I wanted to make site which would be a sort of search engine to find people ,product ,funds in the same domain.
    For eg if I am thinking of mobile payments ,i will register on site and the site will through results who also have registered with mobile payments as a same idea.
    Lack of monetization of this site has stopped me to go ahead.
