On the occasion of World Humanitarian Day, join an interactive conversation about the power of innovation and social media in the humanitarian sector. 

World Humanitarian Day falls on 19 August, the day in 2003 when United nations headquarters in Bagdad was bombed and 22 humanitarian colleagues were killed. It is a day to remember aid workers who have lost their lives helping people affected by disasters and celebrate the spirit that inspires humanitarian work around the world.

so very true..
 
Victor Hugo put it best in Les Miserables: “Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.” As entrepreneurs, we set out on our journey with a certainty of darkness. It is how we manage ourselves during these downtimes that are critical to our success.  http://entm.ag/1deYAok

Support us and vote to bring the real asia to #SXSW.

In 2013, I attended SXSW Interactive to discover that Asia, the world's fastest growing region, was grossly misrepresented. This year Olivier Soubiele, Simon Kemp, Piotr Jakubowski  and I are trying to change that by showcasing to the world that SEA is an exciting place not just because of Rendang, Full Moon Parties, backpacking and being fined for absolutely anything. Vote for our panel "Half A Billion Reasons To Think Beyond China" and help us bring South East Asia to Austin. Thank you very much! less http://bit.ly/14XdjXT
Half A Billion Reasons To Think Beyond China. China and India are no longer the biggest opportunities in Asia. With economies worth 2.2 trillion dollars and a population of more than half a billion people, Southeast Asia now represents the most exciting market in the world.
