Online career network for India's poor

India_street_vendor Anirudh Krishna found that the lack of connections, rather than a shortage of better jobs, is what keeps poor Indians from escaping poverty.

Inspired by this research, Sean Blagsvedt co-founded babajob.com, an online marketplace for low-skilled workers. The company managed to overcome the main barrier to online networking – the lack of computer access by the poor – with a simple incentive. Babajob pays people to help others find jobs.
