CSUF Consulting Gets Results!

One of my favorite success stories from our consulting program is HCP National.

The owner of HCP National is William Dyer, a CSUF alumni who understands the power of our consulting program. This insight has led him to engaging in multiple consulting projects with our program over the years with great results.

For one of these projects he challenged our student consulting team to develop a customer retention strategy. The students got to work immediately researching similar strategies in this industry (medical malpractice insurance) and applied many of the lessons that they had learned in the classroom. By the end of the project the team had developed a gold standard strategy that William and his team quickly implemented.

One of the areas that our team worked on for the next project was the development of an integrated online marketing strategy that reaches doctors. Through the utilization of lessons learned in the classroom and with the guidance of their experienced mentor and my advice they were able to develop a comprehensive marketing strategy that HCP National implemented to more effectively reach their target market.

Success stories like these are not hard to come by in our program. When you mix together bright students, a cutting edge entrepreneurial curriculum, and dedicated mentors from the private sector there are no limits to what our program can accomplish for businesses.

We are now less than a month away from the start of the fall semester and if your company or a company that you know of could benefit from engaging in a project with us please get in touch with Client Project Specialist Charlesetta Medina.

This is a tale of a current software startup and all that it’s done and still doing to raise capital. This talk will not sugarcoat anything, it’s the story of the real life startup grind. The company I’ve riased this money for is Badu Networks, a tech company that develops wifi solutions, and it has been around for 2.5 years and has raised $4.5M all from family, friends, and Angels without having any revenue. We’re nowhere near being successful.
Hear what’s worked and what hasn’t. This is real life, right now stuff!

We can’t give that answer away here! Where would the fun be in that? What we can promise you is that Micha will go into great depth on what that one question is that will make or break your startup. This promises to be a great talk that you don’t want to miss!
