THE COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED

On 28 April 2015, the final stage of the Empowering eEntrepreuneurship took place in an event that declared the winners of the competition.  An event that showcased six excellent ideas.

 

We feel both honoured and grateful to be part of the competition.

 

Honoured, to be part of an event with some amazing ideas, which were of the highest of standards and made it particularly difficult for the Evaluation Committee to choose the best ones.

 

Grateful to all the contributors of the competition, without whose support the success of this project would not have been possible.  Many thanks to Cyta for the excellent partnership and for hosting the final event in their state-of-the-art auditorium, Eurobank Cyprus for their invaluable sponsorship, CyBAN for their support, the members of the Evaluation Committee whose experience and knowledge ensured a fair decision and provided precious insight to the participants, the members of the Organising Committee from Stockwatch and Qmmerce and of course the participants for making this competition a success.

 

We wish all the participants all the best in the pursuit of their eBusiness success!

THE GOAL

Empowering Electronic Entrepreneurship aims at identifying, supporting and promoting pioneering ideas online.  The goal is to enable innovative individuals and startups realise their eBusiness idea, whilst also providing them with the necessary mentoring to succeed online.

WHAT PARTICIPANTS NEEDED TO DO TO WIN

To win one of the top 3 prizes participants needed to provide a viable and innovative business proposal for the promotion and selling of their products and services online.  Their idea needed to be unique and pioneering.  Their idea could have consisted of the eCommercialisation of an innovative product but it could also have been the innovative promotion and selling online of a more traditional product.

 

They needed to provide a clear description of their idea, providing realistic and accurate information and forecasts, whilst also substantiating why taking their idea online was critical to its success.

The Competition Entry Form guided them through all the information they needed to provide.
