Open Invitation to Scoble

Posted on April 16, 2008. Filed under: Invitation | Tags: , |

Dear Scoble,

We happened to see this post of yours. We agree that Israel is far from the US. But India unfortunately is on the other side of the US and literally not many bloggers really care about the startup ecosystem over here. The number of VCs investing are just handful and the number of investors really taking risks by investing in early stage startups is meagre.

How about a trip to India to meet the startups over here? It would be ideal if you can attend an event like proto or headstart during your trip. Given that the next edition of proto is on July 18th and 19th in our capital (Delhi), we believe there could not be a better time than this.

We promise that you will get to know about a number of interesting/promising startups that You or Mike or Sarah, have never heard about! Of course, more QIK videos for your collection too 🙂

Feel free to bring along other blogger friends of yours too!



(On behalf of Indian startups)

Yes Scoble. Tech bloggers like you should definitely make a visit to India and tell the world that even India has innovations. Please accept this as formal invitation.

Count me in. We want scoble, we want scoble … Are others listening?

I definitely want to come to India. I’m trying to work up a trip this year.

[…] valley. I thought that was obvious. News around home is what is easy to access, verify and report. Some of our Indian blogger friends have set out to make an open note to Scoble inviting him to visit India. Well, we’ve always […]


Nice to hear that from you. I am sure, everyone is looking forward for that day.

Hi prabhu

i m sour at
” not many bloggers really care about the startup ecosystem over here ”

count me in – i m a blogger who cares for startups
some startup interviews of mine @
ve a read & cherish

ofcourse the wonderful website i was writing is shutting down due to losses.

their good vision on company news is not matching to their professional experience of web development, python, et la..,

they were searching for any one for a buyout, but in vain…

anybody here – SOS

Srini, make that +1. It’s really a slap in the face for everyone who is genuinely working to change things.

Hi vijay

i m doing articles on interviews with startups,
since the site has stopped, i m searching for any alternative sites to publish stories of startup companies (already having completed interviews for publishing)

could u network any tech/news site who accepts similar work
the background is to promote our indian startups

@Vijay @srini
I said “Not many bloggers write”. I guess I am still right. There are only handful of bloggers like you, srini, asish who write about Indian startups. Please treat this as a slap to all those who don’t write 🙂


Guest posts in desistartups, is probably a good start. Ping me, if you are interested.
