Bravo to ETEC522’s EVA Swarm

Or is it a hive?

As we begin to wind down, I just wanted to express my thanks to everyone for a very stimulating and worthwhile learning adventure.

I’d hoped to have your A3’s marked by now, but that’s an impressive and daunting set of work – I’ll need another few days.

As you venture forward please remember that the best opportunity to make any start-up work is to bounce it off lots of smart people first, so keep your connections with the swarm (and your humble instructors) active.  You all qualify as “sophisticated” investors now….

Warm regards,

DavidV

Speaking of free…

Speaking of free…

Here’s a new venture that hosts up to 1TB of media “free.”

Oosah

Maybe someone would like to subject it to a cube analysis, or even a combined cube-pitch analysis if you haven’t posted one as yet.

An alternative to The Cube

As David Vogt noted earlier in Module 3, “There is nothing special about the CUBE. It’s merely one way of organizing an analysis of a learning technology venture. We’ve offered other approaches and would appreciate further ones coming from you and your research.”

To that end, we’ve posted an article from Technovation that outlines another way of assessing technology business ventures coming out of university research environments. We’re wondering whether you have found others during your research that might be useful to note for the benefit of the class.

If so, please post some links in comments to this post

This is the pitch pool on steroids!
