Our Business Director, Mr. Craig Jo, is honor to be invited to be one of the judges in YDC E-Challenge 2007. This was the second time for Mr. Craig Jo, to be a judge for this respectable activity. Members of the venture community, including triumphant entrepreneurs, business enterprise capitalists, and other professionals will assess and judge the executive summaries and business plans. Judges are responsible for weighing up the plans in terms of the likelihood of the plans to become an actual practical business, the potential financial returns the business can generate, as well as business communication skills for oral and written presentation. Each successful entrepreneur should think out business strategy, develop technological innovation, give a reasonable financial analysis, and execute the plan. Mr. Craig Jo shows his admiration to the participants’ pioneering ideas and meticulous planning. Since most participants are capable and excellent, all judges are qualified to be precise, foresighted and solemn for the judgment.
