Q UESTION 1 To what extent do FLAVORx and CarePages meet each of the tests of an opportunity?
Attractive: market for flavor additives is highly attractive because of a great level of demand and no product available which works well Evidence: ……. Timely: yes, took a lot of time to create the „perfect“ taste. And there is no product available at the time of creation to cover the bitter taste of medicine. Only a few competitors – still bitter taste!
Durable: yes. Always sick persons who need medicine and cannot take it because of the bitter taste, especially children. adds value for its buyer or end user: yes, child, adults, pets helps to take the necessary medicine customer comments Lauren N., 10 years old Evans, GA “I love this stuff because it works. I used the Strawberry FLAVORx flavor when I was younger and it helped so much when I took liquid medication. But I take swallowers [pills] now.”

Durable: Yes, increasing number of page views a great chance for new-founded hospitals to promote their services creates or adds value Yes, improves the image of hospital attract prospectieve patients
Q UESTION 2 Why do you think the idea for FLAVORx was not developed by a large pharmaceutical company long before Kenny Kramm came along, and the idea for CarePages wasn‘t developed by a hospital long before Eric Langshur came up with the idea?
Q UESTION 2 Flavorx : Maybe in big pharma companies they don‘t want to specialize in „just“ better flavours. For them the „usefullness“ of the medicine is the most important one. Not depanding on taste, customer has no choice, they have to take the medicine CarePages : Maybe Hospitals just don‘t think about this option more acess to the internet, not focus on individual patients [http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A html]

Q UESTION 3 Why do you think CarePages markets its product to hospitals rather than directly to consumers, like MySpace and Facebook do?
T ARGET IS H OSPITAL Its make available to patients and family members who were leading their care The hospitals could promote the service and attach the brand, and benefit through improved patient satisfaction and patients and families who were receiving through Carepages community
H OW IT WORKS ? Consumer is free to join Health care facilities pay Carepages for the service and offer it to their patients for free Over 700 healthcare facilities that can make their good PR via Carepages Advertisement Sponsored by Provided by The health care farcicalities benefit through improved customer satisfaction – 30% on average people who use the Carepage service
D IFFRENCE BETWEEN F ACEBOOK AND C AREPAGES Facebook is more growth but who need advise of some illness or injury its hard to find information from Facebook. People still need centralized healthcare website. the ‘author’ of a Carepage site is usually not the ‘patient’ — its not the patient talking about themselves giving updates on their status – its usually the caregiver speaking on their behalf — that is not Facebook
Q UESTION 4 What similarities do you see between FLAVORx and CarePages? What does each company teach you about the opportunity recognition process?
F ULL V IEW OF THE O PPORTUNITY R ECOGNITION P ROCESS Depicts the connection between an awareness of emerging trends and the personal characteristics of the entrepreneur
S IMILARITIES Flavorx & CarePages concern to products and services for health. Business ideas came from real issues. Initially, both of Flavorx & Carepages were used for themselves and non-profit. Each research group include 5 to 10 people and some among them are expert.
T HE POINTS WE CAN LEARN FROM EACH BUSINESS Business idea may come from the most common troubles we have face everyday. We have to recognize and make it become real business. The product or services must be supported by social or many people pay attention to it. We need a team.
A PPLICATION Q UESTION 1 How could FLAVORx and CarePages effectively use focus groups to strengthen their existing products and solicit suggestions for related product ideas?
FlavorX: to create „new tastes“ Maybe get customers feedback and inspiration for future product (pet, baby….) to recognize complaints about their product to talk about competitor brand survey before creating new products CarePages: to get insights to create new tools for the blog – eg daily video reports, interactive staff like chats,… to improve design, to take wishes from the patients in account to present the hospital better
A PPLICATION Q UESTION 2 Think about the service that CarePages offers. Brainstorm other situations that people are in where it might make sense to set up a Web site or blog that allows a person to provide frequent updates and receive notes of encouragement and support from friends. Pick your best idea. Could a business be set up to facilitate the process for others?
