Janet commented on Open-Source Business Models

this is really great! It reminds me of a startup I recently came across: Business on Market St. They are focusing on developing college students and are partnering them with startups/smaller business who may not have the resources to develop business plans. I love that through their learning and development they are contributing to and helping develop the local economy.

This is a great idea! I like the project-based approach to learning and developing career skills. It is both practical for long-term professional development and it's addressing an immediate need by being a source of income for low-income youth. Question and suggestion: From a market research standpoint, have you looked into how this mobile application will be received within this demographic? In other words, are we taking into considering potential limitations with technological resources? It would be interesting to see how much/little mobile devices have been adapted/used within this demographic.
