SABF’s Benefactor, InterNetX, has decided to challenge this year’s participants with a contest very near to both this edition’s subtopics and its own area of expertise: internet and the 2.0 society.

InterNetX GmbH, located in Regensburg, Germany, was founded in 1998. The company offers the essentials for any webhosting provider such as domains, network connections and webspace. InterNetX is a technical and strategic partner, operating for numerous global players in the background. With more than 3 million managed domains and about 1,600 physical servers, InterNetX is one of the largest service providers for professional users and resellers on the international marketplace.

We share the proposed challenge below.

After university, you decide to found a startup business. The business model is clear to you and you want to register the appropriate domain for it. Apart from your own ccTLD, you decide to register a domain name under .CO, .NET or .ORG. Explain your business model and why you would choose this TLD. Also, explain what you expect from your online presence and what you would do to maximize the outcome / profit of your domain name.

Please share your idea with us. To enter for the prize draw, submit your proposal as a PDF on max. 2 pages by July 24 to the provided email. Please don’t forget to mention which of the 3 TLDs you would choose and for what reason. Competition is open to SABF participants only and only one proposal is permitted per person. If you come up with a great idea, we might want to interview you. Please indicate if you are not willing to do so. This will have no effect on your winning chances.

Every day, more than 10,000 companies around the world make .net their domain of choice. Show the world your potential with a .net domain name.

.ORG is the domain for organizations, individuals, and companies to mobilize their communities, achieve a common goal, or pursue a shared cause.

.CO is the global and recognizable web address for launching great ideas. Bring your ideas to life on .CO today. www.Opportunity.CO

If you are a 2011 SABF participant, do not let this opportunity pass you by! Submissions are accepted until July 24
