Practicing how to be a ‘startup’ company in the world of Information Technology
During Showcase, the Capstone team pitches their project concept in the form of a Kickstarter-like presentation to an audience of their peers and a panel of judges from industry and academia. This portion of the Capstone presentation includes the presentation of the project/product concept, marketing plan and financial projections for taking the project to the next level.
One of the unique aspects of the Capstone project is the Project Discussion. Immediately following the Kickstarter Presentation the Capstone students gather together on stage to take audience questions, describe their design, development and implementation processes and get feedback and guidance from the judges.
