Hi all, I had a slight setback over this semester with work and family issue so it has been a bit since I posted. I wanted to give a recap of the last few weeks on how my project is going and what steps I am taking over the remaining weeks. After the venture program graduation, I have been focusing on using the feedback given, reaching out to contacts met in the program, and continued expert research. The goal of this is to continue the research done in the first half of the semester and develop a business strategy. With... Continue reading

Hi all. Hope your projects are coming along well. We are close to the halfway point. As for my capstone, my teammate and I reached a milestone this week, completing our presentation and presenting at the UC 1819 innovation hub cohort. This was a 5 minute pitch to approximately 100 people from a variety of backgrounds. This was the final part of this cohort program. After the event, we received positive feedback from several individuals who came up to us to ask questions and provide their feedback. We received contacts from individuals in the environmental sector, along with an individuals... Continue reading

So for this week, we have been working hard to finalize our presentation, script, and pitch for the Dewy project. This presentation will take place on Tuesday at the UC 1819 innovation hub. My partner and I have been working to create a 5 minute pitch, which seems short but has taken a while to get fully developed. Working with help from the venture lab, we have developed our script around showing our problem with examples then moving into our goal. After showing our goal, I will be discussing our research findings to this point that has allowed us to... Continue reading

Hi all, So as of now we have a total of 10 interviews created which puts us in good shape. I have more scheduled in the coming weeks but for now I have to focus my time on the pitch for the 1819 Venture lab. I have also scheduled several expert interviews with science teachers and individuals who work with water as a civil service. They will help me understand more of the challenges in water conservation, which will pair well with the information from families. Next Tuesday, my partner and I have a trial pitch where we have to... Continue reading

Hi everyone. Hope your projects are coming along well. For this week, I wanted to discuss our current interviews we have conducted, some interesting findings, and next steps for the Dewy Project. To start, my partner and I have been interviewing individuals we have reached out to. As of this post, we have interviewed 6 people, and have 5-8 more scheduled for this week. At this time, it is too early to conclude our research but some initial thoughts have come up already. First, we found that many individuals are not concerned with water preservation as a eco-friendly approach to... Continue reading

Hi all, As of this week, my capstone project is moving along at a good pace. My teammate and I have completed our company profile and project charter. We also completed a base branding guidelines for all materials. This is based off of a previous presentation and feedback from our design strategy course. This will keep us both on the same visual message for both the capstone and venture program she is in. With the charter complete, we have a good timeline on when we plan to have materials done. This week, I plan to complete the majority of independent... Continue reading

Hello everyone! For my capstone project this semester, I will be continuing work from a class I took last semester at DAAP, Design Strategy and Theory. As a brief recap, the project revolved around solving one of the 12 UN goals. My partner and I chose clean water for all, focusing on the idea of not limiting water usage, but changing the behaviors and habits of people to value water as a limiting resource. We developed "The Dewy Project," a possible resource for parents and educators to teach water efficiency for future generations. This project was accepted into the 1819... Continue reading
