In April of 2013, Colorado College hosted a momentous entrepreneurial event for its students. The Big Idea was a pitch event where Colorado College students presented their project idea before a panel of five judges in order to compete for $50,000 in funding towards the project. The panel reviewed the project ideas based on financial stability, effect on quality of life, feasibility and presentation, and the potential impact of the project on the world. In this video clip, entrepreneurs Dan Eppstein and Josh Anderson present their Big Idea, Piece 5 Applications.
"Piece 5 Applications is a company that creates educational games for tablets and smartphones. We use good gaming principles to enhance creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving. These games incorporate visual calculators (patent pending) that inspire the exploration of mathematical concepts without the need for words. These games immerse individuals into an intriguing world full of discovery."--Business proposal
