expertise, specialize in marketing or product design, or are just 
interested in participating, you are welcome to register.

*How will it work?*
Teams of 4-6 students from diverse areas of expertise will form prior to 
the event and will have the opportunity to review the data sets ahead of 
time. On April 20th, all the teams will come together at Stanford’s

expert mentoring and input, designing a prototype, and planning their pitch.
