How Does the Innovation and Feedback Cycle Work?
EMERGE@Simpson ventures participating on-campus, with Carver Connections, and in partnership with the Emerge Foundation follow similar development paths. Ideas and teams are continually refined with the guidance of staff, mentor teams, and faculty.
Core entrepreneurial topics include customer discovery, defining problems, proposing solutions, and developing value propositions. These lead to strategic activities that help ventures prepare for their next development phases.
Ventures begin by agreeing to a basic set of foundational activities, then progress through the stages of:
- Proof of Concept
- Business Model Canvas
- Business Plan
- Enterprise Pathways
