Launch Pad: Interview with Oliver Marks

Oliver Marks was kind of enough to come by the TechWeb office and do a brief interview with me about the Launch Pad program for Collaboration 2.0 on ZDNet. I've re-posted his post below, and you can find the full story on ZDNethere.

If you''re an Enterprise 2.0 entrepreneur, you''ve got until August 30 to Twitter pitch#e2conf-lp Paige Finkelman of the USEnterprise 2.0 Conference your Launch Pad'' contest entry for consideration by thejury (which includes me), and broader audience votes.

The contest, to be held at the West Coast US edition of the show in November, is open to all Enterprise 2.0 vendors of any size that have launched or announced something new in 2010.

Paige spells things out above and you can find more details on theE2.0 blog, with rules and key dateslisted on the official Launch Pad site.Innovation is the lifeblood of any space, and you may find yourself on stage with Paige in November if your Enterprise 2.0 offering makes it to the finals, providing you with valuable exposure.The concept of a Twitter pitch is a powerful one: simply send a tweet containing the hash tag#e2conf-lp and your contest entry from your Twitter account to get into the running.

Here''s avideo archive of past finalists...I''m looking forward to seeing the new crop of entries and ideas...

Thanks again Oliver!
