Important Changes in ONIA 2005-2006

ALL TEN (10) teams that passed the initial stage are now qualified to present their business plans to the panel of judges on Feb 17 (Friday), instead of just the top 5 teams. This move was decided on following the visit of AIM Entrepreneurship professor and TOYM awardee, Jay Bernardo. The format will be similar to the one used in international competitions such as the Sasin Moot Corp Competition http://www.asianmootcorp.com/.

Please take note of the revised deadline/timeframe:

Jan 30, 2006 at 12 noon - Deadline for full business plan (Note: should not be more than 25 pages including figures, appendices etc. and should be submitted in SEVEN (7) hard copies including one (1) soft copy; to be hand delivered to TVB Group at The Village Bookstore, #1 Noblefranca St., Dumaguete City OR the DTI Office, 2nd floor Uymatiao Building, San Jose St., Dumaguete City).

Feb 11 - Workshop on Presentation Skills. This will be at 9am at the DTI
Conference Room

Feb 16 - Round Table discussions with the judges. All semi-finalists are invited to attend. This will be from 5-7pm at the 3rd floor of Flores Hall, Foundation University. You will have the opportunity not just to meet the judges but
to listen to them talk about their passions.

Feb 17 ONIA Finals

9am - 12nn - Presentation of Business Plans at the AV Rooms, IT Center, Foundation University
