Opportunity Recognition Assignment
Please provide 2 concepts.
Each student has to choose two business concepts. Please make sure to read the following guidelines before you select two business concepts. Remember, one of these concepts will become the business plan for your team therefore select a concept that your team is really interested in and think that the concept is ideal for a business plan. The purpose of this assignment is to articulate the reasons that make you believe your idea is an opportunity. This will likely affect or shape your opportunity. Below are listed some important questions that you must address, but you might also want to add additional perspectives. The principal objective of this exercise is to focus the lens on the major components of your opportunity.
Keep it short, but ensure your concept name is descriptive. You should be able to name your concept in 5 words or less (for example CheeseMake Cheesecake Cart)
