AEM 437 Innovation Strategy Prof. Aija Leiponen Final Team Project This is your team’s opportunity to pull the various concepts and models from class together in an analysis of a real business situation. The report should be max 20 pages (double-spaced) including references. The deadline for handing in the report is May 14 4pm. The usual late policy applies.

Teams who are interested in working with one of these university startups should email me with their top 3 choices and I’ll try to assign firms to teams according to your preferences.
