Somehow I like the idea of Microsoft giving me money very appealing
Microsoft Corp. today announced the Ultimate Challenge, a nationwide search for the most creative small-business idea in the country. The contest, which is live at http://www.ideawins.com, has been designed to spur the imagination and spirit of entrepreneurism that drives small businesses. The contest also supports the recent launch of Microsoft® Office Accounting Express 2007, Microsoft’s newest financial management solution that was released as a free download to help home-based and early startup businesses manage their finances. The winner — the business with the most innovative business idea — will receive $100,000 in business startup money, a Manhattan-area storefront for one year rent-free, and infrastructure and software to help run the business.
