3. Theme for the First Business Plan Contest

  • Mobile Broadband
  • Design a new business for the future when every object is connected to the Internet

In the near future, every object, not only PDAs, personal mobile computers, mobile phones, but also shoes, books and food groceries will get Internet access using mobile Internet.  The RFID, the next generation barcode, will help its innovation by helping those objects to speak its existence and accurate location information through the Internet.  It might contribute to the companies to capture accurate inventory, reduce wasteful supply, and reduce CO2 emission.  This means that object has begun to gspeakh without involving human beings.  It is a giant innovation.   Think of a new business plan in this new innovated world.
