Subject: Thanks for your participation and Please Complete TasksWednesday, September 10, 2008Hello Everyone
We want to first thank everyone for taking part in our first GlobalEntrepreneurship Week planning committee meeting. We are proud tosay 17 entities participated on the call and another ten organizationscontacted me off line. Even more impressive most participants remainedon the call for 60 plus minutes and then filled out the survey. As thingsstand, we are sitting pretty with about 27 partners planning to roll theirsleeves up with 65 days to go. To reiterate: We need to finalize thecommittee registration for the event by September 22. Note you can be aGlobal Entrepreneurship Week partner and not serve on the eventsplanning committee. I do however hope that everyone understands theirparticipation is relevant and appreciated, well in advanz.We need now for every participant to fill out our PELT Doodle schedule/poll and a online survey. We are hoping to create committees and themefrom the feedback on the survey. Doodle will allow us to map everyone’smeeting time preferences. As I see it, we should hold committee meetingevery 2 weeks until Oct 12th. After then we re-evaluate the distance tothe finish line. I assume we will have to ratchet up certain elements andratchet down others. Please try to remember this is meant to be fun andmeaningful. Try to keep in mind that this event is aboutentrepreneurship and innovation and the success of this handoverweighs on our entrepreneurial effort and our ability multitasking.In closing, we ask that everyone makes a sincere commitment to thesuccess of this project. Could be big, could be small, whatever the casethis is our chance to demonstrate to the world the cohesiveness andscope of Pennsylvania's Entrepreneurial
Assets. I personally promise tobend over backwards to make this initiative an overwhelming success. Iwill have a location identified by the close of next week. Should anyonehave any advice please call or add it to the survey. Thanks again foryour time and consideration.
 Things to think about:
How to make theExport/Import Challengea Success???
I need everyone who knows of a potential advertiser for theLockerbay.com site please bring them to the table. If organizations wantto use the Lockerbay.com social networking platform for marketingtheir favorite non-profit or charity. Please look for entrepreneurs in theyour back yard that this type of global initiative could be a goodbuilding block.
How to take our awareness conceptglobal?
Prizes big or small. I encourage all entities to think of a creative ways toincorporate their mission and service portfolio. My suggestion is if youragency has businesses as constituents leverage their marketing needsand promotional merchandise. An assumption, if we shower everyonewith some for of meaning or minor gift they will encourage their peersto participate. This applies to youth, adults, etc
How to market for local foodvendors?
I need to a list of food vendors. Again I am looking to work withinnovative, flexible vendors. In this case if we could incorporate into theevent a call to the “King of Entrepreneurial Cuisines.” Ask for the localfood entrepreneurs to demonstrate their innovative recipes (in the formof samples) and marketing plans. Our event participants will be an idealmarket to penetrate for a diverse group of food vendors. For Example;a caterer may find exposure to all of these entrepreneurial agencies andbusinesses is priceless. Another maybe a Pizza place and wants toexpand to serve x, y, and z campuses.
