Description

Bzzwings B-Plan

"When you reach an obstacle, turn it into an opportunity. You have the choice. You can overcome and be a winner, or you can allow it to overcome you and be a loser. The choice is yours and yours alone. Refuse to throw in the towel. Go that extra mile that failures refuse to travel. It is far better to be exhausted from success than to be rested from failure."

- Mary Kay Ash, founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics

Select teams will be shortlisted to the final round of this B-Plan contest at VISTA 2012 and will be allotted mentors from our Knowledge Partners to assist them in their preparations.

"Calling all the dreamers who have the courage to defy convention to turn their ideas into reality."

If you have it in you to make the right choice and are willing to give it your all then Bzzwings is the platform to be at.
