BIMcache into the “Dragons Den” on the Wellington Cable Car

29 10 2008

Wellington based company BIMcache, have made it through to the final phase of the 2008 Cable Car Challenge business plan competition, Dragons Den on the Wellington Cable Car, which this year received nearly 200 entries.

The winners of the 2008 Cable Car Challenge business plan competition are to be announced on the 30th October 2008.

About the Cable Car Challenge Business Plan Competition:
The Cable Car Challenge Business Plan Competition promotes the development and commercialisation of innovative ideas and start up businesses by offering entrants prizes that include cash and services.

The competition emphasizes learning by offering participation in workshops, access to a range of services that assist small business start ups, as well as the experience of pitching your idea to an experienced panel of judges including some of Wellington’s best known entrepreneurs.

There are three stages to the competition to get through with the final shortlist pitching their business or idea in October on the iconic Wellington Cable Car.

I have my fingers crossed for Team BIMcache.
