  • As of now, we have a few more leads on various positions, the main ones are:
  • Jerry-Lee Perkins (PD), found on ASSESSMENT: Years of Lean project management, good track record, familiar with THP and systems processes. He is a mechanical engineer and materials science master with and MBA, now runs his own project consulting business: frugal meister nerds. Into Open Source, seems fairly flexible with contract terms. NEXT STEP: Conference with Marcin.

  • SCORE ASSESSMENT: There seems to be a general resistance to collaboration outside of the Score agenda: startup business consulting. However, we have support from chapters in Central Virginia, Witchita, Autin, and Boston.
  • HELPexers are coming in again: a couple engineers and fabricators.
  • Target list: Saul Griffiths, Scott Benedoch, Reid Hoffman, Behrokh Khoshnevis, TECHSOUP!
  • seems to be the best resume search for our purposes.
  • Linked-IN ASSESSMENT: I paid $50 for a premium account or whatever, but that only allows you 7 requests. none responded. Is it work the $500 for 50 requests?

  • Tom

- Ten more score mentorships. -Lots of TED and Ashoka fellows to contact

- resumes are flooding in, mostly from the NPR and CBC shows, and the blog.

-contact more outstanding international radio shows? (this american life, democracy now, ????).

-enough here to get a decent team together.





  • Most organizations have a company email address structured like this: If you look on the Staff section of a company's website and notice someone you want to contact, try either: or I tested this with Engineers Without Borders today using an old email account, and it didn't bounce back with an error, so I know it went through. Is this ethical? No. Is this excellent? You decide.


-Extensive talks with Carl maucione, score mentor. Looks like its best not to contact board heads for recommendations as Aaron posted. Poach their email contacts?

-5 more score requests. Unfortunately score does not allow hiring of mentors or them sitting on boards, but maybe call the chapters?

-Called nanoholding llc. universities! department heads at UT austen? Nanoengineers.

-called urban green energy.

-A few resumes have come in through the blog posts. No EDs but possible team leaders.

-I have found a good to-call list from the ashoka fellows list.

-Plan for tomorrow: call ashoka fellows, five more score mentors, mine the ted fellows networks, try to find more executive search engines, call Score chapters and heads, and call strategic executive search
