1 Team ProteUS Allen Congyi Ken Shwetha

2 OpenH2O Mission Statement We believe technology will change the world We enable our community to produce solutions for oceanic development We create innovative products such as Protei, an open source sailing drone, designed to clean oil spills

3 OpenH2O – A Global Community

4 OpenH2O Vision and GEM Goals OpenH2O Vision Enable an online community for oceanic innovation Create innovative products such as Protei GEM Goals Advise on marketing strategy to enable OpenH2O’s vision Market Research  Analysis  Conclusions  Recommendations

5 The DE-DART Framework Diagnosis – What is the problem/opportunity? Experience – How will users experience change? Decision – What is our plan of action? Analysis – Why is our plan the best choice? Reality Test – What are the risks? How to manage them?

6 Tools and Methodologies Surveys 1:1 interviews Best practices Diagnosis Experience Branding Social media Website design Decision Analysis Collect findings Determine contingencies Reality Test

7 Diagnosis: The Opportunity Tools Used Technology Adoption Life Cycle (TALC) Identifying the market DE-DART

8 InnovatorsEarly Adopters Early Majority Late Majority Laggards Technologists Enthusiasists Students Research Institutions Sponsors DE-DART Where is OpenH2O on the TALC? Source: Moore (1991, 2002), Crossing the Chasm

9 The Market Opportunity Initial hypothesis: the market landscape has 5 buckets 1. Technologists 2. Enthusiasts 3. Students 4. Research institutions 5. Sponsors We will Teach You How to Fish DE-DART

10 Personas Technologists Meaningful Ways to Engage Them Promote to people interested in open source technologies Build a better website Organize conferences and call for people Competitions Expertise in Marine engineering Communications Sensors and Actuators Mechatronics Robotics Passionate about oceans

11 Hmm….Wonder if I should attend the robot conference tonight??? Personas Enthusiasts DE-DART

12 Personas Students Meaningful Ways to Engage Them Provide a platform where they can easily find out information about technologies Organize competitions and award prizes Looking for academic knowledge Eager to study about new technologies Interested in competition

13 Personas The Research Institutions Mostly academic in nature Build brand name as top priority Recognition by having their work published/getting invited to give talks Meaningful Ways to Engage Them Provide a visible platform for them to promote researches Provide ways to acquire resources to do researches Provide a platform to facilitate collaboration across institutions DE-DART

14 Personas Sponsors Meaningful Ways to Engage Them Demonstrate value Show the various levels of sponsorship and what each level entrails Increased sponsor visibility, press releases, teaching the community about the sponsors Companies, businesses, and/or organizations Similar mission statement Believes in improving the environment by collaboration and innovation Looking for win-win Quid quo pro
