Lance, I offer 25 years experience with business development for startups, 12 of which have been invested with social media tools and strategies in the healthcare, public policy, security and lodging markets. Coincidentally, my wife is leaving for Auckland next week to speak at a conference there. We'd love to learn more, and assist if possible.

Hi Lance, I like the idea. I have one question: being in Italy I have a good knowledge of the Italian and European Market. Could be that useful?

Given the shared interest of CIMIT, we would be happy to participate in the judging or mentoring processes, though we cannot offer financial support. I would be happy to participate, and could also or alternatively seek involvement of the Director of CIMIT's Global Health Program, Dr. Kris Olsen.
