With the SXSW Accelerator startup competition in our rear-view mirrors, it’s time to look ahead to the 2011
Global SmartCamp Startup Competition starting next
This program, sponsored by the IBM Global

countries throughout the year, and a World Finals Competition happening at the end of the year.
New for this year: all the events will be streamed live here and on People for a Smarter Planet
