I saw that you recently wrote about Global Entrepreneurship Week and hope you’re interested in a few updates, now that GEW is underway in 100 nations. Just a few GEW activities have the ability to unite entrepreneurs from around the world with shared experiences and healthy competition – one such activity is Global Innovation Game, the official online game of GEW.
GiG engages budding and serial entrepreneurs in solving real-world challenges through the lens of a social game and provides an online space in which they can connect and network beyond GEW. And now, a few top players have the chance to turn their innovative ideas into reality.
This week only – during GEW – game players will have the chance to win one of three prize packages consisting of expert advice to develop a business plan and market their startup to investors, assistance in identifying potential investors, and up to $750 for business tools to help get them there, such as a computer, printer or software. The packages will be awarded to the players who post the highest valued solutions in the game categories of energy, health and transport by 9pm on November 21, 2010, the end of GEW.
I hope you are able to share this news with your readers – I think that this game and these rewards are quite relevant to them. Full details and rules can be found at http://mercatorxxi.com/trends. The game can be played here: www.facebook.com/globalinnovationgame.
I've also enclosed a link to a recent news release detailing the official launch of GiG: http://pitch.pe/101576.
