During the first half of the spring semester at Georgetown Business School, students have the option to enroll in an entrepreneurship course that is centered around completing a case study on a budding company. This spring, Georgetown selected HelloWallet as one of those companies, and after students were introduced to all of the participating companies, six chose HelloWallet.
Those students have since been working with Paul and Dan from our business development team to gain a better understanding of the history of our company, our business strategy, and our acquisition metrics. Paul and Dan first explained the background of HelloWallet’s revenue model, and then presented the students with the topic of their case study: helping us analyze and determine new business strategies for HelloWallet.
The students analyzed different segments of the market, and then provided deliverable metrics based on those vertical segments. When completed, the students and other companies that were selected will gather at Georgetown, where each will present their findings and recommendations.
Not only is this a great opportunity for HelloWallet to be interacting with the bright students at Georgetown, it’s also a great opportunity for them to branch away from the traditional business school curriculum and get a firsthand look into the rousing world of a rapidly growing startup. Especially one right here in DC, where the startup tech scene is blasting off right before our eyes.
