Capstone – Project

Sales and Business Development Research support for Polyplexus, an online collaborative R&D platform: polyplexus.com

A Collaboration Between

Engagement Synopsis

We are reshaping the scientific R&D process with our partner DARPA, as members of a multi-disciplinary consortium (which includes science PhDs, gaming experts from Niantic and entertainment leaders). The Polyplexus platform serves the global research community and accelerates the rate of idea exchange, hypothesis generation, proposal development, and sponsor identification. This developing network includes both traditional and non-traditional performers and facilitates cross-disciplinary breakthroughs at pace with global change. During the initial stage, the platform gets its funding from DARPA but is is looking to commercialize. The student will work on this live case and help shape a strategy for effective monetization of the platform based on market research and business modeling. An end goal of this engagement could be a report or presentation on how Polyplexus could generate revenue in a self-sustaining manner.
