Message From Cliff Rose
The original motivation for the CTMI came from conversations with friends who are tenured university professors. They indicated that entrepreneurship courses were all too common, however, actual concept and idea development programs which help students incubate and develop real world product and service ideas and then actually take those ideas to market did not exist.
Their explanation was that it is difficult to find experienced, seasoned, marketing and brand-development professionals who are willing to step into the academic environment.
I have specialized in product development, brand development, marketing and sales, and distribution for over 30 years.
Right now the world wide marketplace is hungry for new products and services. Guiding and developing student ideas into actual products and businesses is one of the most thrilling experiences I’ve had in my business career.
I look forward to all the new products we have yet to discover and create.
