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.
Thank you for entering this year's MIT 100K Executive Summary Contest! Our
judges have asked us to tell you that they were very impressed with the high
caliber of the entries and that choosing the finalists was a difficult task.
Without further ado, we are proud to announce this year's finalist teams! They

Looking to knock the socks off the Business Plan Contest? If so, we HIGHLY
