Teams developed a reasonable best case commercialization path for startup Spring Medical Innovations LLC. Students were to first identify the attractiveness and make appropriate recommendations of a commercial opportunity from a best case scenario prior to committing valuable limited resources to further development. Teams made reasonable assumptions related to the commercialization steps to generate their best case scenarios. Any unreasonable assumptions were challenged during the Q&A period of the oral presentations. Teams justified their assumptions to the panel of industry judges.
