All Spotlights » GVSU Computing Senior Project Assists MAREC Clients
Two MAREC incubator tenants recently received valuable consulting support from senior students in GVSU’s School of Computing and Information Systems. In turn, the students gained unique practical hands-on experience serving start-up businesses as clients and solving genuine business needs.
Incubator tenant LongerDays.com expressed interest in finding assistance with some of its information technology (IT) needs as a “virtual assistance” company. LongerDays.com provides a range of outsourcing services including web design, copy writing as well as a variety of administrative supports to clients in the U.S. and internationally.
Joe Graczyk, incubator manager at MAREC, connected LongerDays.com with Prof. David K. Lange, instructor and advisor to the senior capstone courses in GVSU’s School of Computing and Information Systems.
Lange and the Information Systems capstone class seek out projects from non-profits, such as the MAREC Incubator, in which Information Systems majors work in small teams (4-5 students) to gain experience working with clients and delivering final products.
