Please discuss an innovative solution to a problem that you or someone in your community have experienced this spring and summer. For example, I have spent a lot of time thinking about how the costly, on-ground, traditional 4-year college model might change permanently as a result of the somewhat sudden and chaotic transition mid-term from face-to-face to online. You might also want to take a quick read about how a SC entrepreneur adapted his business to print face masks (see file attached below). What have you pondered? As they say, never waste a good crisis!

After you have posted, please reply to at least one other student’s response. Your original post should be 3-4 paragraphs in length. Describe the problem you are solving, how you plan to solve it, and a brief summary of its impact on your customers.

I am NOT looking for ideas that take advantage of the situation or consumers or any form of price gouging. I am looking for information about leveraging innovation and technology to solve problems such as continued education, healthcare, social distancing, etc based on the current event.

If you recall, early in the semester, one of the methods we discuss for developing new business ideas was observing trends. This is a great example of this method.
