As a student for about 10 years at school in Haiti and the USA, I have experienced how to do a research. I have done many. For me, I have always tried to find something that already exist, it could be an existing product or services and on what I can find many articles talking on. My only objectives is to produce a reflection paper. Two of them are included in my resume as an effort to come up with my own understanding based on previous existing realities. I don’t know if it is common to everyone, the road from theory to reality is hard. How to make things happen?
I have always learn how to study and being a test taker to have a good grade. But for now, with this Entrepreneurship and Innovation workshop made in China 2018, I have finally learned how to turn plan into execution. The execution passes by writing a business plan:
I was amazed either to hear from the CEO of Thanksgiving Tea in UPACK Incumbents about the chicken. We may not have our own Chicken, but we can borrow the chicken and produce eggs. This is exactly how to picth to VC. We have heard from a CEO of a start up, which is a temporary business repeatable and scalable.
Writing a business plan is hard and fun!!!
The university of Nanjing China is the most tangible fact of project execution that I have ever seen. Talking about Entrepreneurship and innovation, I have seen in the realization of this project an act of coordination and accomplishment. This new building located in Jiangsu China will replace or complete the old building that serves actually as host for lecturer or class Activities.
The story of evolution of mobile phone has attracted me the most. The number of mobile subscribers in China had doubled each year from 1994 to 2001. By the end of 2002 China had 206.3 million mobile telecommunications subscribers (MPT, MII,
1994–2002), and had become one of the hottest spots for the international and
domestic telecom operators, equipment and phone manufacturers in 2018. The challenge will be enormous for the generation of student coming out from college to get into this developing markets.
I am fortunate and glad to be in China Nanjing with the University of Massachusetts Lowell, specifically with the study abroad department. It’s something that I had never dreamed in my entire life, But God makes it possible. What makes me more excited about this trip is the fact that that I will get the 6 credits that I need to complete my MBA program at Manning Business School of UML.
Since we came here on May 31 2018, we have been living a particular student life with a tough schedule, each lecture contains class exercises, practical cases. We are eight group projects working on real life projects. Each project should have been well conceptualized with a Business plan, interview questions and survey. For the first week we have learned a lot about Entrepreneurship, innovation, Market research and venture launched. Four terms remains on my mind: Process, value, resources and opportunities. I had the privilege in my early age to launch a kindergarten school in Haiti in 1999. This entrepreneurship course has motivated me to do more not only to make money, but either to serve a poor and needy population. I have seen the outcome, for example, my daughters were part of this school and they become great students in USA. I am proud of it!!!
The Study abroad in China organized by the University of Massachusetts Lowell is either enjoyable. We visited the historical Museum of Zangzhou a beautiful park in Yangzhou. We enjoyed the time spent in these two areas. We thank Professor Mehta for this initiative and we thank either professor Crooker for her engagement beside the students, we will not forget the volunteers who did a good job by welcoming us and participating actively to this Session of May 31 to June 16, 2018.
