Georgia Entrepreneur Contest to Kick-Start a New Technology Company

A technology business launch competition in Georgia has drawn approximately 50 preliminary entrants including entrepreneurs, college professors, and others vying to win a $100,000 award and host of business services to start a new technology company in the state. The next step: a group of 16 entrants will be encouraged to submit more detailed proposals by April 19 from which four finalists will be eventually selected to present to a high profile panel of judges in May.

Co-sponsored by the Georgia Research Alliance (GRA) and Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), the business launch competition is a public-private partnership that focuses on the information security and IP convergence technology sectors. The competition, which is open to the public, will end on May 18, 2006 at Georgia Public Broadcasting in Atlanta, when the four finalists present their business plans.
