Who are we?
I’m an Entrepreneur capturing value from things around me and monetizing on it.
What are we offering?
CardNode simplifies building circuits for beginners making the entire process more clear visually.
Who are we offering it to?
The CardNode is an inexpensive way for students to learn building circuits as well as circuits instructors to teach it to beginners. Our target customers are the various educational institutions which have programs with courses in designing and building circuits.
Why does that person care?
Learning to build circuits from schematics is not very visual and intuitive on the breadboards currently available in the labs. It is sometimes difficult for beginners to figure out how to connect components in series and in parallel. With the CardNode, this process for students who are learning circuits will be simplified. The CardNode is an inexpensive way for the Institutions to have a more effective and engaging way of teaching their students. They save a lot of hours in cleanup time when students are done with their experiments and can dispose of the CardNodes the students have used and they do not need to retrieve the breadboard for future experiments. The CardNode can also be recycled since it is made out of cardboard with a conductive material on the bottom making it environmentally sustainable.
Our distinctive competencies
The ability to easily visualize complicated circuit schematic diagrams which are often not very clear in existing breadboards. It allows users to easily distinguish circuits in parallel vs series, which is often not clear when building the circuit. This will develop a greater understanding of power distribution in a circuit. Modern breadboards are often very expensive and our product prevents potential mistakes often made by beginners which can damage those products saving the institution time and money to fix it.
The substitutes & alternatives
There are no substitutes which are exactly similar to the venture that I’m proposing.
Alternatives however include, modern breadboards and circuit building kits. The CardNode is very inexpensive to build and it is also environmentally sustainable. It can be disposed of in a safe manner after use, and you can cut it and customize it depending on what you want to use it for.
Our concept pitch
Our personal pitch
Our first key person
Our first key person is the institution which teaches students circuit courses
They care because it is an inexpensive way of teaching circuits to students in a visual and intuitive way.
Our promise to them is an environmentally friendly sustainable product which doesn’t require any maintenance and little to no instruction to use.
Our second key person
Our second key person is the instructor of the circuit course
They care because they can teach students in a more visual intuitive way
Our promise to them is that beginners would have an easier time building circuits making the instructor’s job easier.
Our third key person
Our third key person is the student that’s taking the circuit course
They care because building circuits from schematics is not very clear for beginners with existing equipment provided.
Our promise to them is visual and intuitive way to learn how to build circuits.
