[E100 Alert] Welcome some NEW E100!  
"Develop a community of inquirers, not advocates."
- Ray Stata, Chairman, Analog Devices
   
 
   
  Dear E100:
   
  Our Network continues to grow in substance and scope...
     
    It seems like a lifetime since the World Summit on Innovation and Entrepreneurship (WSIE) held last year in Dubai, UAE. There have been numerous forums in Mumbai, Glasgow, Washington DC, Austin, TX and more. Along the way we’ve been adding some significant expertise to the E100; and the most recent ISPIM activity in Vienna will be outlined in the next E100 Alert.
     
    Also, we are now in serous partner negotiations for our own innovation technology platform. [Note: Linked-In is only the beginning!] If you have NOT yet signed in, let me know of your continued interest. And yes, we are in active pursuit for the next E100 Roundtable. The market has finally caught up with our aspirations; so it is time to coalesce. Stay tuned for new details…
     
    New E100:
     
    In the meantime, take the opportunity to welcome 17 new E100 added to our Global Knowledge Leadership Map – http://www.entovation.com/kleadmap/index.htm - now representing 165 from 65 countries! Take a look at their capabilities and aspirations to see how they dovetail with your own.
