Date:3/10/2010

Internet Entrepreneur and HBS Alumnus Recognized for PrescriptionDrugs.com Business Plan

Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 11, 2010 -- A week from today, the Boston branch of the Harvard Business School Alumni Club will host their first ever HBS Alumni New Venture Contest. PrescriptionDrugs.com co-founder Mike “Zappy” Zapolin will be in attendance to present the new website’s business plan, which has been selected to compete for a chance at the overall win.

The contest was designed to spotlight and support new ventures of HBS alumni, and semi-finals are being conducted at 8 HBS Alumni Club locations throughout the world, including Brazil, India and England. Three semi-finalists will be selected on March 16 and Boston’s winner will be selected from these semi-finalists on March 30. Finalists selected from each of the 8 local contests will be given mentoring from an HBS faculty member prior to the finals, which are to be held April 26 at the Harvard Business School campus.

PrescriptionDrugs.com Highlighted as New Venture

PrescriptionDrugs.com launched in January 2010 with a mission to provide consumers with money-saving solutions and information. “Consumers value the information that PrescriptionDrugs.com makes available because it helps them afford and properly take the prescription drugs they desperately need,” says Zappy, and PrescriptionDrugs.com’s potential isn’t seen by just one Harvard man. Dr Sanjiv Chopra, Dean of Faculty for Continuing Education at Harvard Medical School, has joined the Company as a Senior Advisor, helping to guide the company’s philanthropic agenda.

Zapolin says of his latest domain development project, “The opportunity for PrescriptionDrugs.com is in the data that people provide us when they tell us about their ailments, symptoms, and current medications.” Armed with this valuable information, PrescriptionDrugs.com becomes an important resource for doctors, pharmaceutical companies developing new drugs, and clinical trial researchers looking for test subjects.
