Born in Nashua, NH  on 25 th December 1975 ,Joshua Baer is a hugely polpular Figure in Austin, Texas. Joshua spend all day worrying about email so that you don't have to. He was also the Founder of OtherInbox,which was acquired by Return Path in 2011.
He had founded or invested in a dozen email startups and you can find his mark on about half of the email messages in your Inbox.

He help people quit their jobs and become entrepreneurs.He brought together 20 others to form the Capital Factory early stage accelerator to mentor and invest in tech startups. He founded His first startup in 1996 in His college dormitory and now teach a class at the University of Texas for student entrepreneurs.

His company Capital Factory will be a larger enterprise that offers working space for startups, mentorship programs and educational programs. It also is expected to become a networking site for Austin tech entrepreneurs.

Joshua Baer and several fellow entrepreneurs have put about $500,000 into the project. Other investors in the project include Ross Buhrdorf, chief technology officer of HomeAway Inc., and entrepreneurs Andrew Busey, Bill Boebel and Dan Graham. The chamber is supporting the effort by helping to recruit new businesses and corporate supporters. The chamber's part of the program is part of its initiative Austin TechLive, started 18 months ago to support more technology startups in Austin's downtown.

Capital Factory and the chamber completed their partnership agreement a little more than a month ago, Joshua Baer said. Another player in the project is New York-based General Assembly, which operates tech startup centers in Manhattan and London. General Assembly will support the center's educational programs.

The idea is to create a community of technology entrepreneurs, some of whom will work at the center and others who will attend the wide range of classes, seminars and networking events expected to be conducted there.

For startups, membership fees will vary. Memberships will start at $150 a month for unassigned seating in the center's open work areas. Higher cost memberships run $750 a month, which includes dedicated desk space.

New investors looks for startups in India

Yes, it is true.  I just head that Dave McClure will be Visiting India to find out the Best Statups  ,    present in this reason.   Mr Dave is an Angel Investor from San Francisco and very popular figure with bankers, programmers and executives. 

His Future Plans in India

Mr Dave plans to provide funds to early-stage startups - He is  just  trying to look for people who can figure out how to convert an idea into an enterprise - with $10,000 to $250,000, along with hand-holding from its global network of 175 mentors, including tech executives, venture capitalists and intellectual-property experts. 
 McClure gets paid as a general partner and collects a cut of the fund's profits. He would not disclose the fund's returns. Punchd and TeachStreet, which were acquired by Google and, respectively, are among 500 Startups' winning investments.

The fund has invested in 300 companies, including Farmeron, a Croatian startup that makes software to help farmers organize data on their livestock, and Mexico's Ovia, which lets companies set up video interviews of job candidates. Both got the chance to operate out of 500 Startups' 10,000-square-foot Silicon Valley work space, where they learned from other companies in residence.

Can Pinterest defeat Facebook?

On a Lovely  Afternoon  A Sales Guy from this company name vinfotech  ask me the above Questions ? He was persistent and drag me for next 10 days to answer to same Question again & again.

I was wondering there will so many people who might have same Question and think Pinterest is slowly replacing facebook in so many sections?

But before addressing this Questions let me explain to my Readers that what is Facebook ( I am assuming still people don't know it ) and what is Pinterest ?

A Facebook is very simple words is a website which connect people all over world with similar interest & liking.

And Pinterest is a Social Bookmarking Website which helps people to pin the interesting stuff on a plain white board.

Facebook helps people to remain connect with friends &  Pinterest helps people to organize their Stuffs.

Facebook can add  anytime the book Marketing feature in site & Pinterest can improve its sharing concept similar to facebook.

 Pinterest can never replace Facebook but it can really reduce its user base. Pinterest caters to the need of Middle Age Women who like organize their stuffs, pics , plans with fellow women.

And Facebook can never take risk to cater only to one Gender/one Segment but silently watch Pintrest taking away these users.

I guess more Niche Social Networking site will be coming to endanger Facebook.
