Ryan presents his mission for today’s class. “I will present a business plan I’ve been working on. I would appreciate your critical feedback on a motivational app I’m hoping to launch“.
Today’s class became a entrepreneur’s presentation to potential investors.
Ryan asked students for their critical feedback, their interest in using a motivational app like he was describing and, finally,
asking students to imagine themselves as potential investors
and if they would invest in Ryan’s business.
The class became a collaboration of creative minds, offering what if’s, an exchange of questions, possibilities
and suggestions for Ryan to consider in the development and monetization of his motivational app.
