Pitch Off and Celebration
Teams on this track will submit every deliverable, produce a comprehensive business plan, and develop a user-tested software prototype. Each team is paired with a coach who provides high-level feedback on a weekly basis.
Teams on this track will produce a business plan, design prototype, and software implementation report. Each team is paired with a coach who provides high-level feedback but not on a weekly basis.
If you do not have other commitments for the summer, we recommend the Full Time Venture track. We estimate a ~30-40 hours/week depending on workload each week. You will go through the entire process of creating a robust business plan and software prototype. Even if you do not have background in software development, you will be working in teams such that at least 1 member will have some background. Our program will NOT teach you how to code, but guide you in making the best strategic and technical decisions in building your solutions.
The Passion Project track is designed to accommodate students with other commitments for the summer. We wanted to ensure all individuals had an opportunity to learn. Because we anticipate those applying for this track will already be working ~30-40 hours a week for their other commitments, individuals on this track will NOT be implementing a software prototype. They will still be responsible for learning important software development practices and writing a report on their plan for implementation.
