Biz3D blends entrepreneurship and 3D printing in an 18-hour, standards-aligned high school program. After learning about 3D printing, its uses in various industries and its impact on entrepreneurship, careers and society, students brainstorm a start-up idea with a product they design in CAD program and 3D print.
Market verification studies
The market verification process consists of YSU students making phone calls to your potential customers in an effort to validate your target market. The benefit of this is that you are able to get unbiased information from the customer.
Going through this process will allow you to see if there is a market for your idea, and to identify your target market. If interested in having YBI conduct a market verification study for your business, please contact Gianna at email@example.com.
