The team has a technical lead (a developer/engineer) and a business partner (domain expert/product manager/marketing) and a designer (for graphics). The team should come up with possible innovative technology ideas that have the potential for commercial success.
The best business technology ideas will be recognize, awarded and will win cool and exciting prizes. On top of that, winners will have the possibility of turning their great idea into market reality through the support of IdeaSpace founders and partners.
