Welcome Participants

Consulting, Startups, Australia, New Ventures,TechnologyFirst of all we would like to thanks to all our participants who has participated in this carnival. We are happy to announce that awe have received 23 28 applications for the event. This is has been a great outcome considering the short time frame we were working in. Ideally we were looking at 40-50 applications but some of the startups have become full grown business now and don’t consider them startups anymore, moreover and other was we tried so many VC’s to come on board but no body came on board.

We are still negotiating sponsorships for the event event with 2 organizations one will be a major sponsorship for the event, if finalized we will pass on the sponsorship to winners of the carnival. 2 smaller sponsors has come on board, once we get the money it will help us in recovering tiny cost and support the enormous day and night efforts going on behind the scenes to make this happen.

Our Judges has started working on putting together the guidelines and soon will be on the task of scrutinizing the profile. It’s a lot of commitment of their time; for which we don’t have any words to describe their effort, least to say we are highly appreciative and thankful to their support and efforts.

From Monday March 3, 2008 we are going to start sharing all the information we have collected in last 2 weeks with everyone. Good luck to all the participants and we look forward to have all of you on the carnival.

And finally this is the list of participants:
Update: Added Surprise Entries Covered under Canival

Vishal has pulled together an interesting mix of the good, the bad and,well, you get the picture - key thing is they are all having a go and being entrepreneurial.

One thing I noticed is how few of the sites detail the founders on the "About" pages -- yes, I want to know what you have built, but I also am really interested in who you are, what motivated you to build what you've built - 3eep does an admirable job at this.
