  1. --------------------------------------- Not really. What i wanted was many submissions ) There is no way i can start and run a business in Armenia while living and working in US if thats what you are hinting. I can open any business magazine and find hundred business ideas. It is not the idea, you need a smart person to implement it and run efficiently. People made millions by selling things as simple as hats or shirts with printed messages and anyone knows about it but only few do it and do it successfully. Regards. P.S. If you have an idea for a business in Armenia and can back it up with a good business plan showing how you make money, let me know )
  3. Only 1 week to go before the deadline... web site is being updated, please use this link:
  4. Only 2 months left if you have a business idea and would like to participate in the competition: Deadline for submissions is November 1st 2009.
  5. In order to improve our work in Armenia in general and to improve advertisement for our "Best Business Plan" competition and future projects we are trying to understand better where the readers of this forum are located. Would you please vote at this web page: The poll is at the very top of the page. Suggestions on the poll or on the projects are welcome!
  6. almost a month passed since i have posted this advertisement about best business plan competition. I have posted the info on, and as of July 18 about 190 people viewed my post but not a single person replied or commented in any way. I also sent emails to the following universities in Armenia: - State Engineering University of Armenia - Yerevan State University of Architecture and Construction - Armenian State University of Economics - Yerevan State University Some of the emails were just to a generic university address like [email protected] and others were sent directly to faculty and lab members whos email i got from the universities web sites. Again, not a single response or comment. I can make only 3 conclusions: 1. $500 dollar amount is so small that not a single person out of those 200+ people is interested, 2. subject of the competition is so hard that no one even considers responding to it, 3. they are too busy drinking coffee at the “Jazveh” while smoking half a box of Marlboro. Or maybe it is the combination of say 1 and 3? I would be very interested to hear opinions of professionals from Armenia on this subject of the competition. Again, here is the link to the page:
  7. web site is being updated, please use new link for the competition page: Old link will exist for a while but eventually will be removed.
