I spent time researching the pain(s) for our Team Presentation #1 over the course of two days. The pain will either be the orphanage crisis or the refugee technology gap.
Researched on the pains in the market for future discussion with the group
Team 3 (Change Agents) spent an hour after class discussing the top two pains that would interest us to continue our milestones on for the semester. We each gave an idea and discussed whether the option would be plausible to create a type of company to solve. Based on team agreement, we decided on top two ideas to research to meet up again and prepare our presentation.
Wrote the Executive interview paper
3 hours spent finishing up the final draft of my second individual paper on Tuesday (9/19)

1 hour and 45 minutes of class on Wednesday going over some examples of pain in the market (9/20)
A 35 minute interview for the Social Entrepreneur paper on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11:35 a.m.
3 Hours researching, beginning the first draft of my paper on Sunday/Monday.
1 Hour and 40 minutes of class time on Monday, 9/18/2017.
During class we completed the Food Truck Challenge and briefly discussed the lean startup and minimum viable product. Professor Passovoy also spoke of confirmation bias and mentioned that if you want to believe in something, that's the thing you should question the most. We went over the process of making a decision, analyzing the results, and acting. Lastly, we talked about the importance of failure in learning and success.
This was our second group meeting. We agree to regularly meet after class on Wednesdays for one hour and to meet after class both Mondays and Wednesdays the two weeks before major assignments are due. We shared emails, and I created a Google Doc to share our ideas for next Monday's Pain in the Market team presentation.
Spent time in class learning and discussing what qualifies as a pain in the market. One of the biggest takeaways was that whichever we choose, it must be a solution to empower people instead of just give them money or supplies.
I helped with the 2017 CASA superhero run for an hour. It was awesome because we got to see all of the kids dressed up in they superhero costumes!
Brainstorming ideas for our Pain in the Market team presentation on 9/26.
What a great morning sprucing up our school ground and getting garden beds ready for classrooms to plant veggies!
