After last class the group and I left feeling much more confident about the direction of our project.
After showing a shortened version of the video I recently posted, the class built off the ideas discussed in the video and helped us solidify our business venture direction.
The main issue, void, that our business will attempt to solve and fill is closing the gap between COST and RESOURCES in terms of post secondary education.
We have begun laying out business flowcharts centered around our company with partner companies on on side and educational institutions on the other. The idea is that we will work closely with both parties to connect talented students with appropriate opportunities at the business partnerships that our firm will have formed. We will charge a fee for companies to have access to our database and resources as well as charging partner schools a similar fee as well.
We realize that the main motivation behind this project was the need to support independent student projects through funding. We are playing with the idea that we would operate as a non profit and thus would be able to set aside saved funds in order to hold bi annual competitions for independent student projects
Any thoughts?? Feel free to comment!
