I just wanted to share this picture of the first morning here. Everyone looks a LOT better than when we got here late last night. Left to right: Tony, Karthik, Mark, Brian and Gagan Goyle. Gagan is my friend who is a young entrepreneur (on his second business already) and started a company in educational robotics about 3 years ago, and now has 70 employees. He is an IIT graduate and is in the IIT incubator. He is a good mentor himself actually to young wanna be entrepreneurs.

The team met with the IIT-B students and Dr. Sethi today. This first meeting went well, lots of good questions. The next few days we will begin slum community visits to start assessing requirements, etc.

I’ll be blogging as well as team members (they will be signed Acara Team)
