2009 ThinkTank Contest!

DK is putting on ThinkTank again this year in September and I’m so fortunate to be able to go again! Last year was a blast and I got to meet a lot of awesome people! This year I will not be diving off any surfboards however!


One of the guys I met is Andy Liu. Andy is an entrepreneur and runs BuddyTV. He is giving away an opportunity to go to ThinkTank! This is awesome, especially since you can’t even buy a way in since it’s sold out! Here are some of the details Andy lays out:

All you have to do is blog (if you don’t have one, start one!) about your startup’s single biggest challenge and your thoughts on how to solve that challenge. If you don’t have a startup, blog about your biggest challenge to starting that new venture and how you’ll solve that problem. In the comments below link to your post and I’ll be sure to read your post. I’ll select the best post by August 31st at noon PST. This is a $3,500 value to a sold-out conference and is open to anyone over the age of 21 in the US. No purchase necessary:)

There is also a chance to win a ticket to Startup Day for the 2nd best post and more importantly, to help out the non-profit Future Hope.

DK over at Purpose Inc and the ThinkTank has graciously offered to send an El Salvadorian student to receive one year of computer training up to a total of 30 children and adults through Future Hope. Not only does Future Hope provide computer and Internet training, it also provides leadership training to set up opportunities for a better life in the future. This is a program that has been around for over 4 years and continues to donate nearly 100% of its receipts directly to El Salvador, there are no paid staff members in the US. The children and adult students that attend come from a community that is considered extremely impoverished or living under $2/day. It is a tremendous program and your post will make a difference.

Check out Andy’s post for all the details of the ThinkTank contest and good luck!
