greenideasOne of the great things that came out of our conversation with Sidney Hargro was that we should apply to  Harvard’s Business Plan competition: We were originally quite excited until we realized that the eligibility requirement was that a team member must be a current Harvard graduate student.

Thank you Sidney for the idea! Sidney is also pointing us to other resources he knows of and has noted that he will be forwarding our company’s information to his friends to ask for other suggestions/ideas. Do  you know of other people we should be chatting with?
