Development of a Multi-Disciplinary New Product Development Course

Northeastern University, 2008 - $29,000

This grant is helping to create a course focusing on new product development within early-stage entrepreneurial firms at Northeastern's School of Technological Entrepreneurship. The basis for course instruction lies in, first, focusing on team formation, market planning, and early product concept definition, and second, on product selection and planning methodology. The course is expanding on a previous NCIIA Course & Program grant, which funded a collaborative effort between Mass Art and Northeastern, resulting in conceptual product designs for the Dell Computer ReGeneration green design competition. Student teams will be made up of members from Northeastern and Mass Art.
