Startups were the hot topics of the day at Cal State Fullerton’s Entrepreneurship Department’s classes on Wednesday, March 21, 2012. The Center for Entrepreneurship at CSUF, headed by author and professor, John B. Jackson (known to his students, friends, and colleagues as JJ), welcomed DishClips for a day of discussion with the seniors majoring in entrepreneurship. Tan and I spent the day speaking to two of the classes and engaging the students in discussions around the process of taking an idea and forming a viable business. Sub-topics included business plans, raising capital, forming the initial team, technology and development, sales and marketing, user acquisition, and a myriad of other challenges and opportunities startups face during the first year of formation and launch.
This was truly a terrific opportunity to not only share our insights with students, but to also gain perspective from a group of inquisitive minds that were not shy to challenge us and ask some thought-provoking questions. We wish to thank each of the students for their participation and engagement, and for allowing us to pick their brains a bit as we left with some rather fresh ideas to consider as we continue to improve the DishClips site and business model.
Last, but definitely not least, we wish to acknowledge JJ (John Jackson) for first returning my call(s) which led to a meeting and ultimately to this wonderful day of learning for all.
