Looking for instructors (outside of the U.S.) interested in involving their (English speaking) students in a cross-border collaborative project designed for an undergraduate level international entrepreneurship course. This would be a semester long project (August to December 2017).
Students from each institution (one from the U.S. and one from outside the U.S.) would form small teams 4-6 students. Each team would be tasked to ideate and develop a prototype of a board game aimed at customers at the other country. They would send the prototype to their “partner team” along with instructions in English. Each team would then test the “partner” prototype locally. The partner teams would provide feedback to each other with the focus on cultural differences and their impact on their product. The product will then be redesigned to fit the local market needs and a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) would be sold to customers (using personal networks, Ebay, Craiglist, etc). Incorporating customer feedback, the individual teams would do a research to assess manufacturing options, shipping costs and feasibility of commercialization.
