Bzzwings (http://www.iimb- vista.com/ bzzwings. html) is one of India's premier

business plan contests and this year we have upped the ante, by increasing

the prize money (Rs. 1.05 lakhs total prize money) and offering *incubation

at the NSRCEL IIM Bangalore for the winners*. Bzzwings '07 is one of the key

attractions of Vista '07. Bzzwings '07 is sponsored by

*Amazon.com* (Innovation Partner) and

*NSRCEL *at IIM Bangalore is our Incubation Partner. We received entries

from students, start-ups and corporates. Nine teams have been short

listed by prominent VCs and academia, from over 250 business

plans, including around 20 entries from corporates and start-ups. Each of

the final nine teams had been assigned a mentor (VCs, entrepreneurs) who

have guided them to refine their ideas and frame a professional b-Plan. The

culmination of the three phased contest is the b-plan defence by each of the

nine finalists in the form of presentations to an open audience on *13th

October* (Day 2 of Vista).

We hope you accept our invitation to witness the presentations and make

Bzzwings '07 a grand success. We look forward to seeing you in the
