Abstract

Currently, students at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) have no formal process for completing their Major Qualifying Projects (MQPs) with small startup companies. The students that want to work with startups generally have to plan their own MQPs and appeal to an advisor for help before they even start the project. Hence, this Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP) investigated and recommended a process for this. We created more streamlined methods of facilitating student led projects with innovative startup companies, helping WPI students to get a sense of new venture creation and growth.
