On August 20th and 21st, 32 future management consultants from top Business Schools in India participated in a ZENeSYS Boot Camp. The objective of theĀ  boot camp was to learn ZENeSYS Competitive Landscape Methodology and write the best analysis for CoolChip Technologies.

Winner of MIT clean energy award and recipient of a DARPA grant, CoolChip Technologies has perfected its patented technology for rapid heat removal from high performance computer chips. They are now ready for its next level of growth.

The participants in the Boot Camp were tasked with using the ZENeSYS Competitive Landscape Analysis (CLA) methodology to provide an unbiased assessment of CoolChip’s product features as compared to its competitors. Three teams from Boot Camp submitted their analysis in the final round which prompted the following response from William Sanchez CEO of CoolChip Technologies.

“We had the opportunity to benefit from their novel methodology for competitive landscaping. The ZENeSYS analysis will be very useful for CoolChip’s next stage of growth as we seek our next round of financing. In-depth understanding of the competitive landscape is curial for positioning our company. The ZENeSYS systematic framework provides a clear, concise mulch-dimensional presentation of the competitive landscape. The tool is a priceless piece of machinery for processing unwieldy amounts of information. The rapid report generation and high standard of quality make the market intelligence very valuable and a resource CoolChip will continue to use as we explore new market verticals and require comprehensive analysis on incumbents and new entrants.”

Harvard India Conference this weekend!

March 25, 2011 Leave a comment

In these lean times we are all making hard decisions where to spend our money and time. There is an abundance of networking events and conferences and its hard to make a judgment. To do my share of “honest” review I can say that judging by last years event, this one is worth going to.

Attendance make sense of course if India happens to be somehow relevant to your business success. In other words anyone who is an investor or doing business with India, a person of Indian origin or simply someone who likes to follow India.

Last year’s event was well planned and the individual break out sessions were charged with emotional discussions. There was never a dull moment. Judging by the agenda and the line up of speakers andĀ  panelists, I am pretty sure we are going to get a repeat performance. The lunch box from Taj Boston should be definitely be an improvement, if there is at all an area of improvement I could have suggested. I am keeping my fingers crossed for a Chiken Tikka Sandwich!

I know this is a last minute thing here and weekends are precious for most of us to compromise. This one is well worth it if you can manage to go. The conference starts tomorrow at 2.30pm and is scheduled to continue all day on Sunday. Here is a link to the website.

They have even setup google moderator to collate attendee questions in advance. Its even better than eVite – we will know what guests will be talking about!
