Just wanted to see if you had a chance to review my email from two weeks ago. If so, I wanted to know if you would consider supporting our efforts. I welcome any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you.
I hope you are doing well. Take care.

It was a pleasure meeting you on the panel at the Fortune CEO Forum on Philanthropy and then seeing you again at Davos. That was my first time at Davos and it was quite a privilege and experience for me.
I am sending you some info on SeaChange because I wanted to see if you will consider supporting our efforts.
I know you heard what SeaChange does when you and I were on the panel, but I have attached some documents, like our 2-page Fact Sheet, our FAQs and our strategic partnerships, so you can see what has transpired.
I have more information which I can send, but I did not want to bombard you with any more attachments. Also, we go live on our website on August 28, but if you want to take a look at the beta site, it is http://beta.sea-change.org .
I hope you will observe that we have been successful at developing our partnerships, our staff, our Board of Directors and Board of Advisors, our selection criteria for social entrepreneurs, our recruitment process and our technology. We have worked hard and patiently and are now poised to officially launch SeaChange.
As for the financials, you will see that we were successful in raising funds beyond the initial few funders, we stayed under budget and spent according to our means. However, because our burn rate is significantly higher as we ramp up for our Preview Period (beginning August 28) and our Launch (October), we need more support.
I hope that you find this report informative and that you are encouraged by our progress. If you should have any questions please let me know.
I hope you are doing well too. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks and have a great weekend.
