Do you have a tech firm or idea ready to go international? Check out the Technium International Challenge run out of Wales. They are specifically targeting foreign firms to expand or relocate to Wales. Its a nice twist on the policy business plan competition. We see many business plan comps put on by public leaders and economic development arms, but the scope of the Technium Challenge is impressive. From their site,
Technium Challenge International is an annual competition run by Technium and International Business Wales, the international division of the Welsh Assembly Government. It encourages international science and technology companies to develop business strategies for the UK market.
- for all entrants guidance and support for developing an international business plan
- for the successful country finalists, an opportunity to participate in a learning journey to Wales and UK, including complimentary business class flights.
- for the overall winner, an attractive prize package and a fast-track route into Technium.
Sounds like a pretty interesting competition and it will be interesting to see what kind of entrants make it through and win this one.
