I’ve long believed in the transformative power of Internet video. Short of direct personal interaction, nothing creates empathy like video. With the internet making videos from anyone available to everyone there’s a chance for independent producers to influence the world like never before.
Bangalore has a great scene of tech startups and social entrepreneurs. If we can use video effectively to make our presence and products known, we can scale up the impact we have in the world. To encourage this I would like to launch the Bangalore Video Star Awards to take place in mid-March and recognize the best Internet videos coming out of India.
