Technology Square Research Building
On January 8th at the monthly TAG/ATDC Entrepreneurs Society meeting the GRA/TAG 2009 Business Launch Competition will officially kickoff. The winner of the competition will receive a $100,000 cash award courtesy of the GRA and a diverse array of services valued at an additional $200,000! This year the competition is focusing on Internet technologies. This includes companies that are developing products, online services, or backend technologies that are using or extending the reach, flexibility and ease of the internet. There is a particular interest in companies within the fields of digital media/technology, cleantech, mobility and securities. If you have a start-up business that fits in one of this areas and would like to get your hands on the prize you are going to want to attend this session.
Come hear from past winners, ReachCall, IVOX and
Acculynk, as the CEOs from each of these
companies tell us of their progress since they won. Then I am going to moderate a session to provide some insight into what it takes to make it to the finals. Details regarding the 2009
competition will also be provided.
