Sending Our Thoughts, Prayers and Energy To Chile

The earthquake that hit Chile February 27, 2010 (8.8 magnitude) -- 5th largest in history -- has resulted in more than 800 casualties thus far and apparent infrastructure damage throughout the country, to the tune of more than U.S. $2 billion and growing. We extend our heartfelt condolences to the people of Chile over the loss of lives and property.

Our thoughts, prayers and energy also go out to all the strong survivors in Chile who are impacted by this terrible tragedy, including our Director of The World Entrepreneurship Forum (full disclosure: I am a member of The World Entrepreneurship Forum and appointed Board member), who is still in Chile on business. Thank goodness he is safe but we hope he will be able to return to France soon.

May all the Chilean residents get back to some form of order, safety and normalcy soon.
