Fabulous work on the Barcamp organizations so far. I got this email from someone I know in NASSCOM. it seems that there is a workshop happening for those interested in setting up their own company. Can you forward it to those on the mailing list, and perhaps they might find it interesting? It might be even worthwhile to make a short post on the blog. 


Dear Members, 

  NASSCOM presents the first series of its workshops focused at the ICT Product companies and the eco system in India  . Please do nominate senior members from your organization or please feel free to circulate this to entrepreneurs in the product space.

            "Product Startups: Escaping   Early Stage Traps"
                       Monday, 21st May 2007   
               NASSCOM   presents a workshop  for Product Startups "Escaping Early Stage Traps" 
   Early-stage companies are often short of   money and need to get traction with early-adopter customers and venture investors.   This is a particularly challenging period for the startup. There are three   traps that they commonly fall into. These relate to product architecture,   go-to-market strategy and building out of the core team. This workshop   explains these traps and shows startups how to navigate them. 
   Target   audience: Early-stage product   companies. 
   This workshop is part of NASSCOM's   Product Initiatives for Early-stage Product Companies, Entrepreneurs, Product   teams and Incubating companies.
   We look forward to see you.
   Best Regards,
   Anusua   Diya Chowdhury
