Executive Summary Deadline Soon

The deadline for you to submit your executive summary.. Normally one page long 😀

An effective executive summary should be simple yet compelling if it needs to win over potential investors, said a consultant from Singapore’s Money Tree Asia Pacific Limited.

“You must be able to capture the interest and imagination of the investor with your executive summary. Often potential investors will continue reading the rest of the business plan only when they like your summary,” said Michael Reyes, who delivered the advice during a workshop on ‘How to Write an Executive Summary’ at the iCentre recently.

“You do not win by having the best English writing. You win by being simple and easy to understand by investors,” he said. “Businesses need to know how to answer, in 25 words or less, when you ask them what their business is,”

He suggest the audience to put Ignite and the iCentre as the investor looking at their business plans and the decider whether to ‘invest’ in their summaries by putting them into the next round.

Michael Reyes, Director of Money Trees Asia Pacific, has been giving numerous talks at iCentre on business plans

Reyes is currently the director of Money Trees Asia Pacific Limited, a company which offers and conducts programmes on improving financial, investment and entrepreneur skills among youths.

An initiative of the Brunei Economic Development Board (BEDB), Ignite 2012 is Brunei’s biggest business plan competition which is open to individuals with a strong desire to start their own businesses.

The grand prize for the ICT open category is $20,000, whereas $8,000 will be awarded to the winner in the international category and $4,000 for the student and university category. Participants with the most outstanding and creative business plans will also stand a chance to win the Most Innovative Award and $3,000. For more of Reyes’ input, click here.

Phoenix Getaway came second, with their ‘bootcamp’ designed for married couples. The ‘bootcamp’ is catered for couples who wish to enhance and strengthen various aspects of their relationship.

In third place was DirectMe, with their mobile application that provides information and suggestions of places of interest in Brunei. Deals and coupons are also built into the app that generates a steady stream of revenue as well as providing the benefits of savings to the user.

Earlier, Brian Koh, Director of KRC Consulting made his opening remarks and lauded the efforts of all the participants.

The Entrepreneurship@Campus Accelerator Bootcamp was held on September 14 and 15, organised by the iCentre and supported by BEBD and Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD). It was an intensive two-day hands-on course that allowed students to craft their business plans in an exciting way through idea generation, interaction and teamwork.

The students were tasked with identifying everyday issues and were challenged to provide solutions that can potentially be turned into viable businesses.

They were also supported by experienced mentors and speakers, who helped by sharing their valuable experiences as well as extensive guidance to the students. Text courtesy of Ishan Ibrahim of Borneo Bulletin.

Car trouble

Three cars (2 Sirion and 1 Vios) badly burnt

Investigations still on going to find clues

Bizarre indeed!!! The incident of the pictures above took place between 4:30am to 5am today (27th Sept) and apparently six cars were involved but only three cars were seriously burnt (2 Sirion and 1 Vios) and the owners of the three burnt cars are sisters. As for the other cars, they had minor burns only.

According to the Royal Brunei Police Force, they are investigating into this matter and they are working hand in hand with “Bomba” to find the cause of the fire. There might be a suspicion of arson. The victims are seeking the help of public to find the culprits. As of now, no motive can be found.

This is definitely a strange case and one of its kind that happened in Brunei soil. Normally a car would burnt down due to faulty devices. However, it seemed coincidental that all three cars were badly burnt at the same time.

Such acts have made me reconsider about Brunei’s tag line of “Abode of Peace”. There have been many thefts, break-ins and even causing physical confrontation on innocent people as of late. I’ve been extra careful with my car and where I park my car too. I do hope the investigation can bring more clues to whose involved in the arson case.

Below are images of cars that also caught the public by surprise. Now with “Whatsapp”, news spread like crazy even before it reaches the relevant authorities.

This happened this morning Seria-Lumut bypass. Image courtesy of Lisa.

Another drive-thru incident

….and followed by another.. This image made me think how did two cars get involved… hmmm
