Special Mention: International Alliances
We received the International Alliance Award in this Latin American competition of business plans organized by the Young Americas Business Trust (YABT) in collaboration with the Organization of American States (OAS). The winners receive mentoring and training with specialized consultants, as well as the marketing and visibility provided as part of the award.
The quality of our Internet-based videoconferencing tool and our solid business strategy placed us among the top eight of the thirty semi-finalists. More than 1,200 teams from around the world participated in this global competition of business plans for entrepreneurs organized by Intel and the Haas Business School at UC Berkeley. We became finalists after winning the Intel Latin American Challenge 2009, and this served as an excellent chance to receive advice from international mentors. It also allowed us to establish a network of professional contacts that will help us enter new markets.
