What would happen if your Virtual World received a grant from a major sponsor like say IBM, or Cisco, HP, Universal Studios, AMD, Intel, Microsoft, Disney the Defense Department etc? What would you do with the money? What would Happen if the Virtual Worlds hosted their own Virtual Trade Show and invited the Big players to help foot the bill as they compete for the attention of 12 million attendees? Would it make a difference to your bottom line?
Below is what a university did with their grant. You would probably do better.
