Helix Design: Group Marketing Project
This semester I worked on a big group project to aid our 3rd year students in marketing for a skyscraper competition taking place in Chicago this May. My portion of the project was more geared towards the business side of the operation. By working on the business plan, I had the opportunity to research the finances including the start up costs of the mock business, Helix Design Inc., projected income of the firm over the next year, as well as how to present ourselves in an appealing way to "potential clients". The experience was refreshing and very eye opening to the process and certainly makes me think twice about starting my own business. I definitely would hire an accountant.
