WIT Socio-technical entrepreneurship students on the MSc in Computing (Information Systems Processing) recently visited SEBIC as part of their development project.
SEBIC Business Consultant Rosemary Ward reviewed a presentation of their work in progress and there was an open discussion on the next steps necessary to commercialise their proposition. Masters students Moses Dayan, Navya Babu and Guradas Raj were appreciative of the platform to showcase their material and obtain an experienced commercial perspective on it.
Their lecturer John Maher commended their professional approach to the iterative exploration of the opportunity their business proposal entails. He observed that "bringing a business to market is like making a jigsaw where there is no picture on the box, you cut and fit your own pieces, determine what is the overall composition and add and subtract to it over time".
This type of collaboration between SEBIC and WIT benefits students' learning, deepens the pool of innovation talent, and underpins the attractiveness of WIT postgraduate degree programmes.
