    A group of very bright students I know has submitted a business plan to a competition out of UT Austin. They've been selected as a semi-finalist! [​IMG] They need your votes to keep going.

    Would you please help by going to their site & voting for them? You'll have to log into the site, which takes about 10 seconds.

    In brief, their project is to seel traditional Rwandan paintings to fund girls' education in Rwanda. This area has been especially hard hit by the genocide. Kat will tell you all about it in the video if you've got time to watch it.

    Hi EC,

    Thanks for checking it out! I was able to see the video. Maybe it's an adobe flash issue? If I'm able to get the direct link to the youtube video, I'll post it asap.
