The goal of the project was to create a set of commercialization strategies for starting a profitable business within the solar industry in the US. The business is based on Professor YousefÂs Maximum Power Point Tracking technique. The project involved understanding and explaining the relevant solar technology and building a business plan around the innovation. A SWOT analysis, PorterÂs Five Forces, and general industry research were conducted in order to assess the business opportunity. The Business Model Canvas was used to help communicate recommendations for commercialization. Additionally, with the absence of past historical sales data, the business plan contains Sales Forecast estimates to roughly predict the business profitability in the first year of its operation.
