“Our goal for this event is to provide tangible resources to make the winners monetizable. The ideas will be fantastic but the process to turn revenue is the key. Since many of the participants have full-time professions, are part-time entrepreneurs or hobbyists, creating a structure that can continue after the event to foster the idea to action has always been our goal. These winning prize packages will support the entrepreneurs long after the weekend is over” states Robert Manasier .
In addition to the many sponsors that are making this event possible, the prize packages include many firms from across the country and Canada. The winning service packages include services from: Phillips Lytle LLP, IdeaVibe, Braathe Enterprises, Choice One Consulting, The Success Educator, IFP Films, In Focus Brands, Diamond Point Advisory Group and Capital Region Entrepreneurs Group. Negotiations are still under way to bring added services to the top 3 winners. With the TV documentary coverage, these resources will also be showcased for future use by entrepreneurs and business owners through Capital Region Entrepreneurs Group.
Steve Farnham of Choice One Consulting and an event organizer/sponsor adds: “it is an exciting time to be part of this growing, local movement. I look forward to spending time with the participants and winners.”
A video from the event will be available Saturday night and winners will be announced Sunday night. Blogs, tweets and posts will occur throughout the weekend.
