Hello I was recently asked to organize an energy futures trading (natgas and crude) competition for Tulane University and the Tulane Energy Institute. The competition would involve an initial round of remote electronic trading among invited schools. The top performers will then be invited to the Tulane Trading Center to compete in a live competition. Currently Tulane is partnered with Reuters as well as Trading Technologies, however, I would like to see what everyone here thought about how to go about obtaining other sponsors that could potentially provide support. This week I will be reaching out to major desks at the larger oil companies in the U.S. but was wondering if there are any shops, CTAs, funds, etc...that I should be considering. You guys are always pretty darned sharp so any assistance is greatly appreciated! Also, here is a quick CNBC clip that aired a couple of years ago on the Tulane Trading Center: http://www.cnbc.com/id/15840232?video=615740234&play=1 PM's welcome!
