Tue, Aug 14, 2012|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , |Comments Off on The tricky game of Olympic sponsorship

From Knowledge@Wharton: The start of the summer Olympic Games in London marked the opening of a window that comes around just once every four years for many gold medal-favorites — the chance to shine in front of a huge international audience and to land lucrative sponsorship deals.
