Visiting Startup @ Singapore 2008

May 26th, 2008 | By | Category: Entrepreneurship, Online Marketing, Personal Stories, Technology Brands, Website Branding

Saturday was a very interesting day – I was judging business plans at Startup @ Singapore 2008. S@S is a business plan competition that allows young entrepreneurs to put their bright ideas into a plan, and if its good – earn about $30,000 in prize money to get it started.

In this article, you’ll find overviews of all the business plans I judged, and my own tips for what makes a competition-winning business plan (Hint – the criteria is quite different from a successful business).

In the beginning, we are all alone.

Then we are born.
