Kettering Entrepreneur SocietyCollege & University in Flint, Michigan
After six weeks of practicing some of the 12 steps outlined in the Discliplined Entrepreneur by Bill Aulet, all four teams were ready to present their products. The presentations included the added value and benefits to the targeted customer and product features. All teams did well but only one team was selected for the $250 cash prize. Congratulations to the Kettering RoMowLawn Team for winning the Fall 2015 KES Challenge!
The KES Challenge was introduced to the B-Section group. However, the product idea was not limited to the Internet of Things. Groups can decide on any innovative product that will add value to the end user. Pictured are groups going through the Product Specification Stage as provided by the Displined Entrepreneur. Each group is required to have a visual representation of the product in addition to discussing the functions, benefits and features of the product.
Four Teams presented their product that used the 'Internet of Things' in home automation. The team that won the $250 cash prize was the team that had the Smart Clock as their product- Brennen Gleason, Chelsea Carter and Ahmed Saad
We kicked off Week 5 with an icebreaker game-One Minute Innovator. The rule of the game is simple: Select a card from each of the following categories-Technological Developments, Demographic Trends and Wicked Problems- and create a product that addresses all three categories. The One -Minute Innovator was followed by a seed grant presentation. #KetteringUniversity #EntrepreneurialMindset #ChangeAgents
For the Summer 2015 term, KES members are honing their entrepreneurship skills by practicing steps laid out in Disciplined Entrepreneurship by Bill Aulet. These steps are then applied to their KES Challenge of using the Internet of Things (IoT) in home automation. Each member of the winning team will receive a $100 prize
