1) Its a noble initiative that needs direction for acorn to grow into a mighty oak.
2) You will find many to mentor, guide and funds.
3) Having said that the program needs a focus, plan and a model that can be unique
to DPS students and not left open.
4) Once the model is agreed upon – to begin with roll out the program in 2 – 3
schools among 10 – 12 th grade students.
5) This could be 3 – 6 months program.
6) Agree on technology DPS wants to innovate wherein students ideas/talent is
invited. Obvious innovation topics could be Drones, Mobility, AI, Robotics, security,
Mobile apps. But how about Social entrepreneurship that would become
emerging business trend.
7)My suggestion – build up an innovation model for DPS. And once that is in place
other pieces will fall into place.
8) Easy way out could be partnering with one of the leading incubator to jump start.
Just broad opinion on your noble initiative.
