The Fall 2015 class toured Barbarian Rugby Wear (And Toyota). Here is the gang with Steve Wagner, Owner.
Test review: 1. This is the sound file where Mr. Morris reviews what is on the next test. It will direct you to your Google Drive where you use your normal KCI sign-on. You will be put into the shared folder where you will find the file. Please let me know if this process is helpful to you.
2. Here is a copy of a hand-out I showed the class on the Language of Startups. But we didn't spend a lot of time on it. Make sure this all makes sense. If it doesn't, ask!
Questions for the Communitech Foundry article: 1. When did the Foundry officially open? Don’t worry, the questions get harder. 2. How are they doing as far as moving in new startups? 3. How long are the members allowed to stay? 4. They mention ‘Mechatronic’ companies. What is this? Check out the programs at U of W (online) and get a good summary statement about what the field is. 5. How many companies are waiting in the wings? Sorry, that was too easy. 6. Perhaps oddly, the Foundry is not buying a bunch of state of the art machinery. Why? Who is Hyphen? Their office is inside the Christie Digital building out on Wellington near the expressway. Include a picture of what they do. 7. What is ‘Y Combinator’? It’s a big deal that’s for sure. Get a one liner on why it’s so special. 8. If time permits find out what happened to the founders of BufferBox. Hint—they sold the company! 9. Lastly, find the actual Foundry site and provide a few summary on companies that interest you. Hopefully, the robot cleaning group WILL come and pitch to us! 10. Report on any other interesting stuff you find! Let’s share our curiosity!
