CrowdSmart is a platform that enables startups to improve their alignment with their market needs early and often. They are partnering with UCLA to help UCLA-affiliated startups improve their probability of success, with a goal of more than doubling the success rate of affiliated startups through better customer alignment.

The first cohort of startups using the CrowdSmart platform needs your advice. While you and other alumni critique these startup's plans and strategies, you'll gain a better understanding of what's happening with UCLA Startups. Two startups will present at this meeting.
