What is the Wendy Kennedy curriculum?

““So what? Who cares? Why you?” lives at the intersection of inspiration and commercialization. It’s a methodology to explore, experiment,model and map the business value of a new idea. Researchers, scientists, and engineers in organizations, institutions, and research labs use it to win support for their projects, products and startup company ideas. Perhaps most importantly, they rely on it to engage people in conversation about why their idea matters and how it creates value for others. This methodology is designed to answer the key questions that every potential supporter of a new idea will have.” – So what? Who cares? Why you? by Wendy Kennedy
