Final Year Project – Fourth entry

We recently presented two sets of work which I mentioned in my previous post. Our entrepreneur module feedback was still quite vague, we were still missing something but we couldn’t put our fingers on it. Our idea was tailored for bridging the gap between virtual and physical gambling, in our minds it is clear what we are thinking but we are still struggling to physically describe this idea thoroughly. Overall we were happy with how the presentation went, Myself Luke and Michael are confident talkers and as long as we are comfortable with the work that has been done that we will try and discuss this thoroughly.

Our second presentation was in front of a panel of two, Cathal Gurrin and Paul Clarke who are lecturers, staff involved in EC4 projects. This presentation went quite well I felt, Luke took the introduction, Michael discussed the target market and I discussed the financial projections and how they relate to our market research. Overall the feedback was positive, we were asked a few questions on the business case, the security of this type of service and the motivation behind our idea. Also Paul gave us a rough work of potential questions we should ask ourselves before moving forward. We also submitted our initial proposal which will be graded alongside our presentation. Key aspects to this document include

  • Project Summary
  • Technical Delivery
  • Financial & Market rationale
  • Timeline
  • Workload Distribution

We had a substantial amount of this workload done due to our entrepreneur module, I am grateful for the re-structuring of modules for this course as it helped with this heavy workload. We slightly adjusted the financial after some feedback, Luke was the most comfortable in this area therefore he headed this task. I, myself managed the timeline and structure of the project and the work which was to follow. Vizzlo charts are an easy, manageable application to use which I would recommend. Our workload distribution was decided on past experience and what skills best suited our team but keeping in mind we aim to collaborate our work extensively following a groupware concept. We await the marks for this so we can effectively assess our work but until then we are working on our next investors pitch.
