Missive from Concept Camp

Speaking of learning the value of team-building, I visited high-tech business incubator VT KnowledgeWorks‘s Concept Camp at Mountain Lake on 2/21/08.

I met Concept Camp attendee Christine Nelson, CEO of IspiriGlobal.com, a business consulting firm specializing in customer service.  In a 3/4/08 e-mail, she wrote:

I thought the topics covered at the Concept Camp were helpful in terms of providing a look at the realities of launching a business.  The discussions with other potential business owners were invaluable–the group provides feedback, constructive criticism, and encouragement.  Many of my ideas were confirmed, and many will require some additional work.  From my own perspective, the Camp allowed me to clarify my own goals for my business launch,  and gave me confidence that I’m pursuing the right path.

I’m launching my business April 1.  My website is up and running at:  www.ispiriglobal.com.

I read a blog entry in Duct Tape Marketing and thought it might be interesting to you (as the official blogger). This one in particular provides some tools to help businesses manage their online identities.

I hope our paths cross again.
