The Acara Institute was founded to develop an organization and network to link together schools (universities, colleges and high schools), companies, individual mentors, and small businesses to help address pressing global challenges. We believe people and organizations want to help, but don’t know how. Acara will provide an infrastructure to allow them to get involved. The first part of doing this, is the Acara Challenge. The pilot for this program is ongoing, and we will be posting summaries over the next few weeks of the work being done by the students. I’ll be in India next week, and will be posting updates from there as well.

Erin and I both have experience with previous startups (for profit and non-profit), with multi-national corporations, and extensive experience with cross-cultural teams. Over time, we’ll post more insight into some of the things we hope to do with Acara.
