  • Develop a business team with their peers, and adopt a C-suite role focused on their academic strengths and career interests.

  • Prototype the solution through an array of opportunities such as 3-D modeling, photography, drafting a website, or designing an app.

  • Working together, teams will research their market, create marketing and operations planse, develop a financial analysis of their including start-up costs to profits, prepare a full "Shark-Tank" style pitch and presentation deck.

  • Publish a written business plan, generally 10-20 pages.
