Hi Sramana Mitra! I started a website with a slightly different business model. This website provides info about entrepreneurs from india and also discusses the state of the financial sector in India. The thing about this site is that, everybody who joins this site would automatically become a business partner and would share the revenue more or less in a fair and equal manner. Right now we have 40 members. Members include stanford grads, IIT undergrads etc….Lets see how things go
