ACI coaches Team Mexico in the Global Student Business Concept Challenge

 For the third consecutive year, the leadership of Automation Creations has hosted a foreign student finalist for the KnowledgeWorks Global Student Business Concept Challenge.  This year, a team from Monterary University in Mexico worked with ACI’s CEO, Jim Wyers, and President, Henry Bass, to perfect their pitch for “BondTour” – a social travel site with plans to connect tourists with independent touring and adventure businesses, such as family-run SCUBA diving, or truly local dining and entertainment.

“Every student team had a fantastic presentation, and each was worthy of investment.” Said Henry Bass. The VT KnowledgeWorks team compiled an excellent video capturing this year’s experience.
