Business_Launch_2010_Logo_for_SiteI’m looking forward to once again being a semi-finals judge for the GRA/TAG Business Launch 2010, with company presentations this week.

This competition, designed to help a Georgia-based start up technology company launch its business, has one of the largest prizes in the country: $100,000 $50,000 cash plus $200,000 in kind services. The competition also offers entrants the opportunity to be mentored by a successful high tech entrepreneur.

I heard some outstanding presentations in 2008 and 2009 competitions. With a great roster of companies on schedule for the 2010 companies, it should be a great week.
