This past Monday marked the third session of our DifferenceMaker Boot Camp, and the progress that these teams have made in the last couple of weeks is remarkable. Near the start of the session, the teams presented their improved business models to the room and received input from their peers and the mentors, as always. Since the groups are now further along in process, the discussions have been even more complicated and detail-oriented. This was followed by a lecture on “Creating and Delivering the Solution”, which gave our entrepreneurs even more insight which they will use to further develop their business models. Guest speaker Rajnish Kaushik, Assistant Director of the Office of Technology Commercialization, then came in to talk about IP, including patents, copyrights, and the like. The information that the teams learned in this session will prove invaluable later on in the development of their businesses.
Thank you to the session’s advisors and special guests!
