The students must put together a startup fair on all-new episode of Startup U, airing on Thursday, September 24, 2015 at 5PM ET/PT on ABC Family.
In “Not So Fair,” this week’s lesson addresses cost, profit and enthusiasm and comes in the unique form of a startup fair. Each team must create an imaginative booth that demonstrates their knowledge of money and resources, ultimately proving they can sustain their businesses long after the program ends. As preparation for the fair kicks into full gear, Team Phoenix’s arguing threatens to ruin yet another assignment, and Tony, John, Keyonna, Malcolm and Sharon are having a hard time putting aside their differences and working together. Erin is on edge as she really begins to questions “Romeo in a Box,” and a one-on-one meeting with Tim leaves her with even more self-doubt. After a pep talk from Ana and Carly, Erin hits the streets of San Mateo to do some market research, but the mixed results seems to set her back again. Meanwhile, Dan Price (Founder, gravity payments) visits Draper University and speaks to the students about making an impact and helping others, and Shawn is on the hot seat when Erin McPherson (Chief Content Officer, Maker Studios) moderates the third and final Pivot meeting.
Dan Price (Founder, Gravity Payments) and Erin McPherson (Chief Content Officer, Maker Studios) are guest experts.
