Case Study: University Incubator Explores the Science of Business with CPN Livestream Network

Science and technology are daily components of our daily lives, from emergency medical treatment collaborations via virtual means or turning citizen journalists into the next viral media star. The National Science Foundation (NSF), ECU (formerly Eastern Carolina University) Small Business and Technology Development Center at ECU and, Greenville Seed ECU partnered to create a unique incubator program Idea 2 Impact which allows grassroots businesses access to tools and resources to elevate their concepts from thought to execution.

The official line on the program reads:

Idea 2 Impact is designed to help faculty, students, and staff on their journey through the ideation, innovation, assessment and commercialization process.

The program just graduated their Phase Two Session Three group which included celebrated Facebook live show creator, Avant-Garde Musician/Filmmaker/Artist, Ceasar Romero, whose CPN Network has grown from a local broadcast in the Carolinas to a burgeoning elite live stream platform via Facebook, which hosts content creators both domestically in the US, Africa, Europe, and Asia. The platform’s audience is widespread across the globe and receives submissions from more countries than we can list in a brief aside.

Romero’s story includes time spent working in experimental cellular television with AT&T in New York and for a Master Systems Operator with Direct TV. His development efforts with his streaming platform led him to accept a placement in the ECU Idea 2 Impact program in support of the science of technology.

Completing the course

As part of the endcap process, the prospective business owner has to show and prove that their idea works in the application and recently, Carlos shared one of his field trials with his audience and The Hype Magazine:
