As some of you may already know from our previous discussion
in the Early Stage Finance
group, we are planning to roll out a series of IASE Business Plan Competitions. Until we're ready to launch, we will be using this Group to solicit input and maintain updates. After our launch, we will continue using this Group for ongoing discussions related to the competitions.
While we get ready for the first set of competitions, we would like input from the IASE community on what topics may be ripe for GLOBAL business plan competitions. On a related note, we would also like your input on potential sponsors for these competitions.
Here's a sampling of some initial ideas:
- GeoEye Space Imaging Competition
- SpaceX Avionics Competition
- iRobot Robotics Competition
- Sirius/XM Satellite Media Competition
- Magellan GPS Competition
You get the idea, right?
If you have strategic connections with any potential sponsors, please let us know. Over the coming weeks we'll be posting more details about the competition program. In the meantime, let's get the brainstorming started with potential topics and sponsors.
Thanks for your help!!!
