Do you have your own tech-business idea you'd like to pitch to a panel of venture capitalists from Silicon Valley for actual micro-seed capital? This open competition called the "Innovative Minds, Endless Possibilities” KSEA Business Venture Challenge will take place during the Young Generation Technical and Leadership Conference (YGTLC) hosted by the Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association, a 40-year-old non-profit professional organization with over 5,000 members across the US.
This is an individual competition where you would prepare a slide presentation on your existing tech-business idea prior to coming to YGTLC and deliver your business idea pitch during the second day of the conference, Saturday, January 7, 2012, for awards and prizes. The presentation will follow the format of a business plan, which precisely defines your business, identifies your goals, and serves as your firm's resume.
PRIZES & ELIGIBILITY
Up to $10,000 prize will be awarded to or shared by the top finishing individuals with successful business plans. Competitors must apply for YGTLC by November 30, 2011 for eligibility and submit their presentation slides by December 7, 2011 for first round evaluations. The $50 conference registration includes 2 nights of lodging at Embassy Suites, 8 meals including 2 Distinguished Speaker Banquets, and access to the Job-Recruiting Career Resource Fair.
