Nick Fontaine ~ MIT IDEAS Competition Inspires!

It was excellent to have MIT IDEAS Competition leader Nick Fontaine on my MaximizingProgress.tv show (f.k.a. HighTechFever) where he shared some of the exciting things afoot. The students have deadlines next week and then everyone can see the range of ideas at the Awards Ceremony on May 4th, 2009. Over the eight years of the IDEAS Competition, there have been hundreds of entries and dozens of projects and people who have gone on to make their ideas real, including XoutTB, InnovatorsInHealth, Ghonsla, AssuredLabor, Aerovax, CellBazaar, and more! Two of last year's IDEAS winners -- SHE Sustainable Health Enterprises & OneEarthDesigns / SolSource -- are this year Semifinalists in the MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition D-Track, which is also fantastic progress!
