Now why do perfectly nice people have to get cocky and spoil it all? The organizers of Proto.in, which hosts its next edition on January 23 and 24 in Bangalore, have come up with a feature called PitchCamp! — “Learn the inside scoop on how VCs (venture capitalists), corporate partners and journalists think.” writes Proto.in curator Vijay Anand. I’m catching up with this December 3 post on the Proto.in blog a bit late and would have missed it altogether if a young entrepreneur had not pointed it out. I’m impressed that the organizers actually have the scoop on how journalists think and will be passing on that wisdom to young entrepreneurs. I wonder if there are going to be any journalists involved in those PitchCamp workshops. I hope not (for the sake of journalism and entrepreneurship).
The MoMo Monsoon press release dropped into my mailbox this morning and with it one more bit of information — a new web design and solutions startup called NetBramha Studios. The formal launch was on July 19 and the website looks pretty slick. The services on offer include logos, themes, search engine optimization and Internet marketing among others.
