250 Word Presentation Description:
In 2007, Advanta, one of the nation’s largest credit card issuers (through Advanta Bank Corp.) in the small business market, launched ideablob.com – an online community where tens of thousands of small business owners and entrepreneurs actively share business ideas, feedback, advice and support. Advanta awards $10,000 each month to the person with the best idea, as determined by the votes of the ideablob community.
Since ideablob’s launch in September 2007, Advanta has awarded over $130,000 to eligible entrepreneurs. Perhaps more importantly, its community of over 80,000 registered users has posted thousands of business ideas and provided many more pieces of advice. This interactive session will highlight Advanta’s most recent innovations: ideablob University and Bloblive.
Ideablob University is revolutionizing the way students dream-up and breathe life into new business ideas. This no-cost, interactive free market of ideas is easy to set up for classrooms and its unique platform provides professors a tool for experiential learning.
Bloblive is an interactive, in-person session that provides idea submitters, thinkers and advisors the opportunity to bounce entrepreneurial ideas off each other. Learn how to create your own Bloblive event and how it will change entrepreneurial brainstorming.
