Design and pitch a startup business that solves a problem with a marketable product or service. Students will pitch their ideas for starting a business around a product or service. Through applying the scientific method to starting a business, they will build a canvas, a simplified business plan, where they will identify problems and form solutions in the form of a hypothesis. Through early customer centric testing, creation of feedback loops, and reiteration, students will refine their ideas into a high quality product or service, and build a formal business plan that is presented in the culminating event.
3 Class periods per week for about 6 to 9 weeks.
Students can submit proposal as a group.
One submission per class per year.
