Social and Environmental Technologies Inventors Challenge
Mitra over at Natural Innovation writes about the SET Challenge.
The SET competition, is a prize for a business plan for a new social or environmental technology. The idea is to bring together innovators with business students to look at how to commercialise technologies.
I think this is a great idea, as many innovations never get off the ground because of the lack of business skills of the inventors.
This is the first year of the prize, with full plans due March 31st 2005.
See www.set-info.com for more info.
Mitra is a volunteer advisor to the competition. If you want to check it out, click here.
If anybody has any ideas which can be submitted here, if it is ok, I would like to hear them out and see if I can contribute anything. The deadline : March 15th 2005.
Any MBAs out there who will be interested in this?
