Entrepreneur Commons keeps getting momentum with new chapters in 3 new cities in Asia:
  • Shanghai
  • Seoul
  • Bangalore
Also in this newsletter: new class coming up at Entrepreneur Commons Academy, and reminders for new chapter launch events coming up soon.

I will be at the Social Enterprise Alliance Summit and World Forum next week, and at the Angel Capital Association the first week of May, so maybe this is an opportunity for us to meet if you are there too.

A new chapter in Shanghai
