Ideas from Global Entrepreneurship Week at KU School of Business

As mentioned before on the blog, KU School of Business’s Global Entrepreneurship Week asked student teams to propose ideas for the MoCoLab. At the Lied Center Event, 4 teams presented ideas. As reported by the Lawrence Journal World:

“Four groups were tasked with fleshing out an idea that would somehow make use of the Mobile Collaboration Laboratory, or the MoCoLab, a university project to turn an Airstream trailer into a roving venue for collaboration….

The groups presented their ideas on how to use the MoCoLab to improve the economic and social conditions for Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kan. Ideas included turning the trailer into a mobile shop (YouthBuild) that county high school students could use for construction and landscaping projects, a recruiting office for a program that trains high school students for work in the biomanufacturing industry, and a roving business incubator for the Wyandotte area.

The winning platform, developed by KU students Emma Murano, Brandon Wood and Kent DiasAbeygunawardena, would incorporate the MoCoLab into a social startup called “Wyco ShareStream,” a “mobile platform for first impressions,” as they described it. ShareStream would help small businesses in Wyandotte reach new markets around the Kansas City area via the MoCoLab.”
