I wish I were a part of it. I am in Mumbai <Sigh>

I would like to make a slightly modified suggestion.

One can ask the businesses bring their problems/issues/requirements.

Promoting open source software won't hurt in that case...

Products like alfresco (as a replacement to file share), Jasper
reports/perntaho for CA openvista for heathcare vertical etc come to
mind. Perhaps a demo setup with heterogenous (but staunchly FLOSS in
the backend/infra) with fixed/mobile clients/frontends would impress
