upStart Overview

5

The programme has been designed to take students through a conceptual start-up business experience, which will be comprised of three distinct stages creating around develop product or service and taking it to market

High-Level Business Plan Development

Product / Service Development

(Minimum Viable Product)

Bring The Product to MarketBased on the assignment brief and supported by Citi subject matter experts student teams will draft a high-level business plan for product or service, giving the project a real world contextThe business plan should contain at a high-level a view on market opportunity, describe key capabilities of products or service and how it could be used and associated benefits / value proposition

The approach will be flexible enough to be accommodate both business and technology students – mix teams or individual disciplines

The plan will then be used to set the scope and depth of the product / service development activities in the next stage

On a per project stream basis a Citi senior mentor will be assigned to support the students as they work through this stage, during this period the mentor will meet in person with student teams at least twice and conduct calls / video conf with the teams as required (demonstrating Citi’s commitment to the programme)

Based on the business plan students would be expected to manage and develop a

working

conceptual model of product or service

Depending on the students focus either business or technology the depth and scope of the product / service development activities will be tailor to ensure correct alignment (business students are not expected to program)

Once the development stage is complete students would prepare a demonstration and plan on how they would bring the product or services to market

The output of which will be presented to a panel of senior executives who will host a constructive “Dragons Den” type forum where students would present and demonstrate their products and services with a view to gaining support from the Dragons

There will be no winners or losers but the a tally will be

kept

to identify the best ideas

All students will be recognised for their work with a Citi award for the best projects being optional (depending on university preference)

Depending on the quality of the venture support may be provided to assist students take the idea to market

Duration of programme can be customised to universities needs

The Innovation and Start up AlternativeEmphasise that a start-up, early venture is a viable option on completion of the course. This is in addition to finding employment, continuing academic research.

Technology Themes These represent key technology enablers, are widely available and have a strong market context

Cloud – Cloud technologies provide the highly scalable and cost effective infrastructure platform for early start-upMobile / Smart TV – We are starting to see a common and low cost platform emerging that represents a large market opportunity with very low barriers to entry e.g. get your app in the app store and do some basic marketingIntelligent Systems – An evolution is underway in the way that we interact with software we believe basic artificial intelligence technologies embedded within products could create large market opportunities e.g. expert systems / rules, schedulers, genetic algorithms Sensor Technology

– smart phones have made sensor technologies widely available enabling new forms of interactions with both the physical and virtual environments, emerging indoor position technologies present a lot of white spacePayments – Pervasive mobile infrastructure has yet to be widely adopted, however key

foundations are starting to be in place to make this happen (Citi is a key player in this space)Social Networks – Although struggling in the markets, the ability to leverage social networks at technology and business level provides a great platform to link to or build-on

Smart Cities – networks of distributed sensors, events and flexible infrastructure are providing an opportunity to adapt a city to its needs.
