Hi, Please support me in raising money for Echoing Green, a fantastic organization that provides seed funding to social entrepreneurs through a venture capital-like model. A recent Harvard Business School case study opened with the line "It is harder to be accepted as an Echoing Green Fellow than it is to be accepted into the Harvard Business School." I am an Echoing Green judge and have seen how tough the competition is and how passionate, driven, and polished the participants are. So the money ends up in very worthy hands. I am fortunate to have a Hundred Hole Hike partner who is himself a pioneering social entrepreneur, Paul Polizzotto. A bit about me, I live in New York City with my wife Jana and children Max and Janita. I was captain of my high school golf team and reserve/waterboy for the Yale Golf Team. I am co-founder of East Rock Capital, an investment firm based in New York. I am praying for cool weather on June 17. ALTERNATE SHOT PARTNER: Paul Polizzotto
