Hello, My name is Ron Tramontano, I am the President of The Virtual Project and this remarkable platform, we call Virtual Competitions Online. Here are some of the things you need to know about our platform. Our model is a business based model, meaning we deal in what it is you do.  Especially now amid this COVID-19 crisis, we want to provide a way to help school and business owners all over stay safe and provide an income for their families as they continue to do what's right for their enrollment. 

For investors, however, there are three very compelling reasons why this is an excellent investment. First, we are Amazon Proof; we do not believe Amazon will be getting into this business anytime soon. Second, all kinds of small businesses such as schools that do Dance, Karate, Music, and Yoga, etc., if you give thought to their business, they are the equivalent of our modern-day influencers. A school may have hundreds of students, maybe thousands enrolled; the school owners can direct enrollees to the training they want them to have. Each of these students will be asked by their schools to join our platform by paying a small annual fee to Virtual Competitions Inc. This will generate ongoing revenues for the Virtual Project.

Tournaments, Competitions, Fundraisers, Contests, and Charity events are activities school owners will create for their enrolment.

Third, school owners will see entry fees for events they create being deposited directly into their PayPal accounts.

Competitions are not the only way school owners will be able to generate income, the selling of advertising ads, subscriptions to online training, the rental of video training content, to name a few. Our platforms are built and have just launched. I am prepared to engage with any investor we qualify.

Eventually, we will decide on one investor capable of bringing attention to the platform, someone like Kevin Harrington, Mark Cuban or a Kim Kardashian, or maybe even a Mr. Wonderful, now that would really be wonderful. We are on the verge of creating something so big to compete anywhere in the world on a platform that consistently brings new revenue to business owners that use our business model. It will create wealth for investors, increase revenue for the industry represented, and provided cash and prizes for competitors that will participate in competitions organized by school owners.

We have a major WOW factor 3D Theaters built by International Companies, such as Google, Apple, Sony, LG, and Microsoft, will become The WOW! Factor on the internet. People from all over will be saying WOW you HAVE to see this. I require a number of assets' to sustain our continued success, marketing, Key personnel, and larger servers. Virtual Competitions is best summarized as: "Making the world a smaller place by going to where our clients live and having them show us their skills and talents." Due to the nature of our business, our platform will acquire content from all parts of the world in many types of business models. This content will be used in other projects; we plan to develop. Visit our platform here at, Virtual Competitions with the s, online dot com thank you for your time. https://virtualcompetitionsonline.com Thank you and please stay safe.

Let's set a time to talk. I can walk you through our platform.

Hi @AndreWitte - sorry I didn't reply, and I no longer have access to that account for notifications... You can find updated content in the Docs articles and well laid out trainings on Microsoft Learn.





Having trouble finding the Quick Start Guide? It's down at the bottom.

Can you also share the decks, please?


Hey Kirill - sorry for the long delayed response. I was on paternity leave during Oct, Nov, and Dec and am back at work now. I'll look for the decks and find the best place to share them. Microsoft folks also have access to some great resources on the internal Infopedia page (aka.ms/commercialmarketplaceinfopedia).
