I take great exception in considering WASC a competitor. 

Thats like saying the Red Cross and Doctors without Borders compete. We should be in a collaborative/supportive relationship with WASC! We are a •non profit•; and that spirit is and should be central to the marketing of OWASP in my opinion.  Otherwise, this looks like a good start.

Tobias has contacts at the London School of Business and lined up a MBA student to work on this for OWASP.  I've had several emails and calls with this student to discuss the project and get things started.

I am currently working for a start up company based in the UK and I am doing the  Marketing strategy and 'Go To Market' strategy for their telecom product.  I have worked on various areas like Project Management, Software development, Quality Assurance and Presales for various multinationals like Alcatel-Lucent, Motorola, Qualcomm and also for start up companies in the UK."
