America’s Next Top Entrepreneur

Microsoft is launching a new product, Office Accounting 2007. As part of the launch party, the software company is conducting a competition for the best small business idea in the country. The winner of this contest (which ends Jan. 30, 2007) gets free retail space in New York City for one year, $100,000 of start-up funds and free software and tools to run the online aspect of the business.
Strawberry Frog worked with Microsoft to develop this promotional campaign.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
