Webinar: Every gateway has competition—Identifying, differentiating from, and working with competitors

March 13, 2019

Every gateway has competition—Identifying, differentiating from, and working with competitors

Presented by Juliana Casavan, Entrepreneurial Programs Manager at the Purdue Foundry and SGCI's Science Gateways Bootcamp Instructor

Every product, service, or project has competitors, but how do you identify them? Do you need to worry about competitors or maybe collaborate with them? During this session, we will first identify your audience so that you can consider your competitors from their perspective. We will then talk about how to identify competitors and find your differentiators. We will also discuss how to consider collaboration and the benefits of working with your competitors.

Special Edition Webinar: How SGCI Helped Coastal Emergency Risks Assessment (CERA) Gateway Meet Their Goals

Presented by Jason Fleming, ASGS Technology Manager, Seahorse Coastal Consulting, LLC

The CERA team participated in the second Science Gateway Bootcamp offered by the SGCI Incubator. Join us to hear about the CERA team's experience with the Bootcamp and how the Bootcamp led them down a path to work with usability consultants from SGCI's Incubator service area. The team is also currently working with SGCI's Extended Developer Support consultants.
