The 2009 South Asian Sum­mit is fast approach­ing (reg­is­ter now!) and its shap­ing up to be an amaz­ing expe­ri­ence. The lat­est devel­op­ment is the announce­ment of the speak­er for the Change­Mak­ers Awards recep­tion, Sud­hir Venkatesh, Colum­bia Uni­ver­si­ty pro­fes­sor and author of some very inter­est­ing books about the under­ground econ­o­my in inner city Amer­i­ca (includ­ing one I am cur­rent­ly read­ing: Gang Leader for a Day). We are very excit­ed to bring Venkatesh’s insight and per­spec­tive to the Sum­mit. So don’t miss out on any of the excit­ing events and reg­is­ter for the Sum­mit (Apr 24–26 in Wash­ing­ton, DC) today!
