Burton's comment on this Group's page raises another interesting question: what types of competitions do we think we should run? Obviously, we can start with business plan competitions. However, are there others out there?
- Prize competitions (a la Google Lunar X PRIZE)?
- Partner/customer contract competitions (a la COTS)?
- Recruiting competitions (e.g., Microsoft/Google coding competitions)
- Scholarship/fellowship/intern competitions (e.g., winner gets a 12-month EIR position with a VC firm looking for aerospace investments)?
We can certainly get creative!
