Have an idea? E-Launch is for you.
The Center for Entrepreneurship (CFE) wants to nurture and support ideas/concepts/products that you would like to pursue moving into the marketplace. E-Launch has been developed to foster entrepreneurial activity that will lead to the commercialization of technology based ideas.
Through an interactive process, participants will learn to clearly conceptualize how the product or service can provide real value to customers. Participants will be shown how to validate their value proposition with customers and other stakeholders. In addition, the program will assist in the development of a business model that will deliver the value proposition to customers and provide a framework and methodology to create a viable startup company.
