BizzyB features a “Fab Five” Concept Canvas and Journaling System to strengthen any innovation and entrepreneurship project. Collaboration features and templates that offer instructions, tips, examples make concept development between team members and mentors easy and fun.
BizzyB applies project journal content to presentation reports including Pitch Deck and Business Plan in preparation for presentations at contests, in classes or in funding pitches.
BizzyB features a Library of contests. Enter your projects in hackathons, science fairs, business plan competitions and classroom and capstone challenges.
