Vodafone is looking for more daring entrepreneurs

28. February 2008

Vodafone is launching a nomination campaign through which it wants to discover more interesting business stories among its business clients. The most engaging and most original will be presented in online and printed titles in cooperation with Czech media outlets. This project will thus be a newly formatted follow-up to the successful Dvanáct odvážných (The Daring Dozen) TV documentary series. People can send nominations from February 28 to May 15, 2008 to odvaznipodnikatele@vodafone.cz.

Vodafone is launching a nomination campaign through which it wants to discover more interesting business stories among its business clients. The most engaging and most original will be presented in online and printed titles in cooperation with Czech media outlets. This project will thus be a newly formatted follow-up to the successful Dvanáct odvážných (The Daring Dozen) TV documentary series.

People can send nominations from February 28 to May 15, 2008 to odvaznipodnikatele@vodafone.cz. Entrepreneurs can nominate themselves, or they can be nominated by associates with their permission. The complete nomination conditions are available at the Vodafone web site.

The objective of the project is to enable smaller, mid-sized, or lesser-known businesses and entrepreneurs from various sectors to present themselves, and thereby inspire others who want to start their own businesses. The public will have the opportunity to watch profile videos at the www.aktualne.cz portal, and they can read related interviews in the business weekly Profit.

“We chose a new form for the project mainly because of flexibility with regards to time, and because it gives entrepreneurs who spend most of their time on the Internet and who buy economic magazines, which they can read anywhere, greater accessibility to information,” says Martin Pejša, Director of Tactical Marketing for Business Customers, adding, “The project also features an educational campaign in the form of advice for starting entrepreneurs, to whom we would like to give some good tips so that they are not starting from scratch.”

Two groups of entrepreneurs can be nominated:

1. DARING STARTING ENTREPRENEURS

Those who have started their businesses very recently, but who have already successfully overcome initial obstacles.

2. SMALL AND MID-SIZED BUSINESSES WITH DARING IDEAS

Those who have been in business longer and own a small or mid-sized firm based on interesting and original ideas that have proven themselves successful.

The only condition is that the nominees are Vodafone customers.

The authors of the two most interesting nominations to be published will win two HTC TyTN II mobile business smart phones with GPS navigation. The authors of the winning nominations will be selected by a panel consisting of Vodafone representatives and they will be announced by mid-June, 2008 at the latest.
