NASSCOM EMERGE Forum is happy to announce an award at the Product Conclave 2010 to recognize the prime movers behind creating an active Startup Eco-System. These evangelizers are either volunteers (running start-up support organizations in addition to their daytime jobs) or professionals (in the startup ecosystem space, like say running Education Incubation centers or full time Directors of startup support organizations or running mentor orgs or even running angel funds). These individuals may be functioning in an individual capacity or through an affiliation to an organization engaged in the startup eco-system. May be informal guides or champions, formal mentors, incubator, investor, organize eco-system events or much more.We would like to compile a list of such individuals and also recognize those creating a significant impact in the eco-system in helping create or grow new startups. NASSCOM EMERGE Forum invites members to nominate individuals or organizations that are creating an impact in the startup eco-system space promoting or nurturing new startups.
Last date for submitting your nominations: 12 October 2010
