Presented by Rusty Shaffer and Chris Riche
For an idea to have merit as a business, it typically has to solve a problem or meet some unmet need, or do a better job solving a problem or meeting a need than currently available. The most successful startups seem to be created and launched by teams of people, bringing together a variety of skill sets, a diversity of perspectives, a passion for the business idea, and a shared work ethic. Does the team have members who can fulfill the roles of hacker, huckster and designer (technical, relationships (sales) and visionary)? Not all entrepreneurs are “the individual with the new idea.” Most entrepreneurs need help to refine a good idea and move the concept forward. This workshop will provide opportunities for students to a) get feedback on their ideas, b) attract other students to their teams and/or c) find a team that needs their expertise and energy.
