Stuff About Me:
I am the founder and CEO of Bamyan Media, a social enterprise that produces Reality TV competitions for entrepreneurs in developing countries: Aka The "American Idol" of job creation for the poor. Our entertaining series showcases successful entrepreneurs and teaches people how to start a business. I produced the pilot program, “Dream & Achieve,” in Afghanistan, where it aired on the largest TV channel and became a #1 surprise hit. An estimated 7 million Afghan viewers watched contestants pitch and launch their ventures, and voted for their favorites with SMS messaging. Thousands of participants were linked to local resources for help with finance, training, and business development. Bamyan Media is currently launching the innovative model in Colombia and percolating pilot 2.0 in East Africa. Fellowships from Echoing Green and Rainer Arnhold’s-- two outstanding organizations that support social entrepreneurs at their start-- have been a tremendous help.

If I could attend Summit at Sea, I would be able to make crucial connections that would accelerate the impact of Bamyan in the parts of the world that need change the most. Your contribution could help make all the difference, so please consider making a quick donation. I guarantee you won't regret it!
