Great White Remediation Technologies is a MIT 100K Executive Summary Competition Finalist

Sometimes I feel like I am working on so many things that it's hard to keep track.  One project I especially enjoy is the work I've been doing with Great White Remediation Technologies.  Great White has a pretty amazing product - a environmentally friendly polymer that absorbs 77x its weight in hydrocarbons (oil, gasoline, etc).  I have been working with the inventors, two very nice R&D people out of Canada to develop a business plan and refine their pitch.  I feel proud that we have gotten it to the point where it is a finalist in the Executive Summary Contest of one of the world's most prestigious business plan competition, the MIT 100K.  If you know of anyone interested in this type of technology, please let me know.

I'm posting all the track finalists for the ESC, as I'm sure they'll be happy for the little bit of extra publicity.

Looking to knock the socks off the  Business Plan Contest? If so, we HIGHLY
recommend that you take this  year?s IAP offering 15.975The Nuts & Bolts of
Business Plans: http://entrepreneurship.mit.edu/15975/.

The course is open to members of the MIT Community as well as  entrepreneurs and
students at large.

It will be particularly  valuable for people interested in starting or working
in a new  business.  Some of the speakers will be judges of the MIT $100K
Entrepreneurship Competition, so don't miss this opportunity.
