I just wanted to check back and see if you've given any further thought to a survey we can distribute to businesses who are seeking funding for an invention or enhancement. We need to gather data that will help us determine if the companies will utilize this service, how they might like to be contacted, if they think it is worthwhile, etc.
We made a commitment to complete this by Sunday morning, so we are good to go! Thank you for this incredible opportunity to share these ideas. Have been reading the other posts/ideas, and am in awe of the brilliant ideas that have been proposed.
Hello Yash! Thank you for providing the information on the Leslie eLab. We have something similar at the Stillwater campus (Research Institution) for the OSU System. I really love the concept, and believe very strongly that OSUIT should create something similar. I hope, that through our partnership with OCAST and NPDC, we will be able to house such an innovative hands-on lab. It certainly supports our pedagogy.
Our students are very skilled technicians. I'd like to see them become successful entrepreneurs, and your program suggestions, i.e., workshops, talks, etc., are significant ways to provide that exposure. For our next project iteration, I think we need to consider including these suggestions. Even without the lab, we should incorporate these activities into our planning.
