CyBIZ Lab Process

Steps Description
Step 1 Company or organization submits project request form
Step 2 CyBIZ Lab team reviews request and proposes a project outline, project type (consulting vs. live case), timeline and fee (if applicable)
Step 3 When project is defined and accepted by both parties, CyBIZ Lab will administer the project agreement and non-disclosure forms
Step 4 CyBIZ Lab recruits and assembles project team
Step 5 Projects performed based on agreed-upon timeline, including periodic reviews as scheduled in the project agreement and timeline
Step 6 Students deliver final project and presentation
Step 7 Company or organization completes project evaluation and fee payment

Please submit information about your business and project idea by completing the online form. Submitting a project request does not guarantee the project will be accepted and completed. It also does not commit you to a project but allows us to explore the possibilities for a successful project. We will try to be as accommodating as possible given the resources and timeline available.
