Abstract

Despite Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s (WPI) innovative culture, students lack a clear understanding of available resources for their business endeavors. We launched Gompei’s Goat Cheese as a precedent for student-led ventures and detailed resources used and the obstacles faced. It became clear that the university could benefit from a comprehensive resource that detailed key components of launching a venture at WPI. We developed such a resource, Student Startup Outline, and tested its’ value and effectiveness through focus groups, which led to its’ revision.
