Both in my last assignment with JobsAhead and current, I travelled the length and breadth of country interacting with a number of wannabe enterpreneurs. One thing that clearly stands out is the lack of awareness (or the lack of) of the enterpreneurial support system available within the country. Lot of exposure has been provided to the valley with almost no visibility of stuff available in say 51 miles.

May be its a good idea to put together local resources well and increase ground level interaction somehow. TiE Mumbai had put together some events (I went to one recently on mobile marketing), but the participation largely remains confined to same faces.

Hope I will be able to contribute my bit.

I was convinced of being an enterpreneur when I got pulled up one way or the other by every employer who hired me for doing things my way (wrong way they said). But they were happy I did it anyway almost always.

10 years of paid work - more better than worse.... Hutchison Max, BPL US West, JobsAhead..... my best is still to come....

One wife...One kid... sexy car and my Guitar keep me occupied most of the time...rest of the time my employer asks me to clock hours at office...(be a role model he says)....
Well I have my own role model...and what do you do if its Recardo Semler...

And I live in Mumbai (its worse than that now....the traffic jam has moved up by some 30000 ft....You'll know when you try to land at our International Airport)
