Business Planning Course

al salamo 3alikom wa ra7mato ALLAH

Well, another track to our lifetime movie ...
We've (3DEER Team) prepared a small business plan to apply for the "Business Planning Competition" sponsered by "Ideavelopers" in collaboration with the MCIT, AUC, Telecom Egypt, ITWorx, TDF, EFG and ITIDA.
We have won the first phase, and chosen with other 29 teams to participate in the semi-finals al-hamdulellah ... but time!!
Today was the fisrt lecture, the course will finish 19th of May (First day of final exams!) ... daily from 6 to 10pm except Friday
Wow! ... I'm so confused now... only one per team should attend the course (team members can switch)... so I've attended today.. and that post is about the impression towards a new experience.

Today I've seen professors, master students, under-graduate students. People from different fields, but the majority was the IT field.
The instructor introduced himself, then those who have written business plans before introduced themselves ... they are about 3 persons... sure all of them are running their business.

Then time for each person to introduce himself, along with the idea (optional) ... I was the last one. Some of them had good presentation skills, others it would be better if they have talked in Arabic :D .
I liked that our project is really unique, and no one talked about Robotics, except somehow in children thing project by undergraduate students in AUC ... the word "LEGO" was mentioned by one of the participants (commenting their project idea).
All time I was preparing what to say ... at last I've said the minimal words, and I missed some words about "Why Robotics?" that I think it would make a difference, but al-hamdulellah ... as I was the last one, people were in hurry.

Then we've to make groups, each 5 make a group. I'm a member of a group, with two students (one I've mentioned above), senior technical man running a company and a dentist :D
The group has chosen a project to make a business plan for by the end of the course, to be evaluated, then the best group with 5 members (each representing his original team). The competition then will be among those 5 teams (I think there will be two winning groups, so that number of participating teams in the Final are 10)

Now I'm backing home, wondering how we'll manage 8-)
ALLAH al mosta3an, ed3olna argokoo :)
al salamo 3alikom wa ra7mato ALLAh wa barkatoh
