TiEQuest 2009 Business Venture Competition

As some of you may know, TiEQuest 2009 is now accepting entries to its annual business plan competition. Last year, my team and I participated in the competition and found it very valuable to us. We made it to the top 5 but did not get to win any cash prizes :( . Hopefully, someone in Ottawa will have more luck and win a portion of the $150,000 in prizes that TiEQuest gives out every year.

If you’re interested in applying, please visit the TiEQuest website (deadline is Jan 30th to submit expression of interest in participating).

On another note, TiEQuest is using ReviewRoom (a product we’ve developed at Chide.it) to manage the competition. If you do participate, feel free to give us some feedback – aydin [-a-t-] chide.it :) .
