One of our final 3 companies from BSW1, FindASpeaker, has made the latest cut in the Alabama Launchpad Business Plan Competition. 

“The purpose of the Alabama Launchpad Business Plan Competition is to promote and reward marketable high-growth, technology-based ventures that have the potential to attract future funding. The competition is for new, independent ventures in the seed, start-up or early growth stages, or for the expansion of an existing business into a new high-growth market. It should be noted that a different panel of judges will be used in each phase.”

The organization just announced the semifinalists today.  The next cut comes in March 2008.  We wish Craig Huggart all the best!

Craig Huggart, who worked diligently on FindASpeaker.org during our business development weekend, has an interesting account of his experience at “Confessions Of A Tech Barn Raiser” – worth the read!
