100th One Million by One Million free roundtable

What began in 2008 as an interactive forum to encourage entrepreneurship in the wake of the financial crisis continues to gain momentum. The One Million by One Million (1M/1M) initiative will be celebrating the 100th free online roundtable for entrepreneurs on Thursday, October 6, 2011.

Of the more than 7,000 entrepreneurs who have registered for these free roundtables, well over 400 have pitched their businesses and received coaching from Sramana Mitra. She reflects on the journey.

During the 100th roundtable, several entrepreneurs who work with 1M/1M from all over the world will be sharing their entrepreneur journeys - their experiences and goals - as inspiration for other startup entrepreneurs. These 1M/1M entrepreneurs, who usually meet during the members-only private roundtables, are at various stages of building their businesses. Each will provide an insider's view of the 1M/1M program.

This interactive roundtable will be moderated by Sramana Mitra, founder of the One Million by One Million (1M/1M) initiative, an educational, business development and incubation program that aims to help one million entrepreneurs globally to reach $1 million in revenue and beyond.

"We are very proud of the progress our 1M/1M entrepreneurs are making. At this stage, we have validated our model of a distributed, democratic and 100% virtual entrepreneurship education and incubation program," said Sramana Mitra. "We are able to positively impact the journeys of entrepreneurs around the world. It gives me confidence that we can achieve our goal of restructuring capitalism, and establish capitalism 2.0 through the 1M/1M global initiative."

On a typical Thursday, all attendees are invited to pitch their businesses at these free online roundtables. Entrepreneurs receive straight-shooting feedback from Sramana Mitra, advice on what their next steps should be and the experience of pitching their businesses in a public forum.

Sramana is a Silicon Valley entrepreneur and strategy consultant who writes the blog Sramana Mitra On Strategy, and she is the author of the Entrepreneur Journeys book series.
