The Planet, the parent company of the ServerMatrix hosting company I'm using for my servers, is having a contest for female entrepreneurs who have a good idea for an online business. A winner will receive free web hosting for a year, $10,000, and other support:
Women with a great idea for an online business are encouraged to submit a brief proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org. Contestants will be narrowed to five and Mark Cuban will select the final two during a live broadcast mid-August.
The two finalists will be charged with preparing their online business in just five days. The Planet will assist finalists with designing and hosting their websites, and set-up of merchant accounts and a database management system. Contestants will receive on-air mentions and promotions of their business on Kidd Kraddick in the Morning. At the end of seven days, the contestant with the most successful business will win the contest and prizes. The winner will be announced at the end of August.
