Students will work in teams developing sustainable business and technical solutions to address an environmental or social challenge in India. Teams may address a challenge related to water supply, energy availability, food/agriculture production, waste management, public health or a topic mutually agreed upon by the instructor and student teams. During the semester, a product or service must be designed, and a sustainable business model must be created around it. Technical and business development professionals based in the US and India will act as mentors to provide advice to each team. Each team will have one US-based mentor and one India-based mentor. The teams are expected to use a discovery process, design thinking, ideation and input from field research in solving the challenge. A primary focus of the course is up-front work to identify the "right" problem to solve. The model should be built around the customerÔ┐┐s needs and wants, as they will need to pay for the product or service to achieve a scalable model. prereq: sophomore, junior, senior, graduate student
