HPT Engineering specializes in developing innovative technologies for the assistive technology field. We make it our mission to increase mobility and rehabilitate those who suffer from weak core and leg strength. The assistive technology business is growing at an unconditional rate and we have developed and implemented a state-of-the art new technology, The Hybrid Power Tricycle (HPT). The HPT was designed for those who suffer from weak core and leg strength such as Cerebral Palsy and offers the user the ability to feel the freedom of mobility and the joy of riding a bicycle. The HPT may be outfitted for all age groups and can be distributed nationwide. HPT Engineering operates as a small business that relies on personal sales as our income. We aspire to outfit hospitals, rehabilitation centers, daycare centers, and households with the HPT to ensure those with poor core and leg strength may receive the best possible product for treatment and rehabilitation. The assistive technology market is constantly changing and HPT Engineering will ensure that each of our products are ahead of the curve.
On 8/21, the group started practicing for our final pitch. We heard from half of the class, and they amazing! It is great to see how much my classmates have grown their idea or business.
On 8/22, Justin and I did our practice pitch. It definitely has grown from when we started, but like always, we can change some things up. The constructive criticism/advice from classmates and Sandbox staff were extremely helpful and overall helped us make a better pitch. We also heard the rest of the classmates (who did a great job). David Parker gave us some great tips and what to change during our pitch.
