A great resource for entrepreneurs: Sramana Mitra online strategy roundtables

Sramana Mitra is an entrepreneur and a strategy consultant who is sharing her experience with entrepreneurs through a free, weekly, online strategy roundtables program, and through her blog, and her Entrepreneur Journeys book series. All resources worth looking at.
And in 2010 she has decided to do even more: if a million entrepreneurs around the world grew their companies to $1 million in sales, it would add up to a global GDP of $1 trillion, and up to 10 million new jobs. So she set this goal for herself to help 1 million entrepreneurs.
The content that she provides through her program is a great complement to the peer-support that Entrepreneur Commons provides through local chapters meetings, and we are happy to help her spread such best practices so that she can reach her goal.

Entrepreneur Commons is a network of entrepreneurs that provides peer mentoring. Entrepreneurs meet on a regular basis (typically once a month) to share issues and successes on their current projects with other entrepreneurs. These meetings are an opportunity for all to exchange information, knowledge and contacts in a trusted environment. Members of Entrepreneur Commons also have access to the global network of entrepreneurs who have already joined local chapters in other places, or who have joined the online community through the Entrepreneur Commons Academy.
