We're looking for a dedicated MBA, MPA, or Masters student or degree holder who is able to commit at least 20 hours a week to join as the VP of Marketing for Glowfish, a Web 2.0 social entrepreneurship, immediately.

Glowfish is a Web 2.0 network of nonprofits, foundations, and people interested in the activist community, modeled as a functional version of existing social networks, such as Friendster and Facebook. It's vision is to create a community where nonprofits can share all of their information, from best practices to photos; and to organize and make easily accessible this information, thereby increasing the efficiency with which civil society operates. Glowfish is pre-launch, and can be previewed at www.glowfish.org (when we are not making modifications), or you can look at the attached screencap.

We're looking for someone who is well-organized, creative, self-managing, enthusiastic, writes well, and is ideally located in either Boston or the Bay Area.

A little bit about us. Amit Modi holds graduate degrees from Stanford (in Engineering) and from Harvard (in International Relations). Kumar Kota is an EECS graduate of Berkeley, and has 4+ years industry experience at leading Internet companies.
