Entrepreneur: Sabeer Bhatia

Sabeer Bhatia shot to fame when Hotmail.com was bought up by Microsoft for $400 million. The sale heralded the dot com boom, which later went bust of course. Sabeer is now launching BlogEveryWhere.com. He wants to speed up email access – he wants to be able to mirror the internet. A lot of confusion behind what he is trying to do.
A number of Internet sources incorrectly state that Sabeer studied in Bishop’s Cotton school, Pune. There was no such school in Pune. There still is the Bishop’s school Pune but I cannot remember Sabeer being an alumni of the school. Since I am myself – it would be nice to know if he did indeed study at Bishops.

In any case, Sabeer is a true entrepreneur. A few failures will not offset his desire to come up with new ideas. Wish him luck.
