Author and awardwinning software entrepreneur Razi Imam has announced his intention to donate a portion of the royalties from his new book, Driven: A How-to Strategy to Unlock Your Greatest Potential, to Church World Service.  

In Driven, Imam introduces a powerful motivational philosophy and method for solving business problems.  His approach is designed to enable the reader to experience fresh inspiration and vision, plan out actions with clarity, hone one’s concentration and focus, and triumph in bringing about changes in both one’s own life and the lives of others.

In deciding to share a portion of his royalties with Church World Service, Imam noted that, in the same way that he has been driven to fashion imaginative solutions to addressing business problems, he is equally driven to making the world a better place.  In particular, he says he cares passionately about the growing problem of world hunger and feels that he can have the greatest impact by supporting the work of Church World Service.

Razi Imam is the founder of Landslide Technologies, a fast-growing sales process automation software company that has received wide acclaim from customers, analysts and press. He has also recently founded 113 Industries, an incubator for next generation materials science companies. Its goal is to help breakthrough discoveries in nanotechnology become viable commercial products. In recognition of his entrepreneurial success, Carnegie Science Foundation has presented Imam with their prestigious 2010 Start-Up Entrepreneur Award, which honors innovation in science and technology.

“If advance sales of Driven hit 10,000 – that’s purchases made prior to July 16 -- Church World Service will receive a higher portion of the royalties,” notes Bill Wildey, CWS Director of Funds Development and Marketing.  

Driven will be available in stores on July 13.  Advance orders for Driven can be placed online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.  A chapter of the book can be downloaded at www.DrivenNation.com.
