  • Successful Presentation! Yesterday we had our final presentations at UNESCO and they were all a great success.  Our group started the presentations out and the crowd seemed to be impressed with the work we accomplished, as are we.  We've come a long way since A-Term and it's awesome to see our deliverables finalized.  With the revitalized VPC website and accompanying mobile app, the new Venice Dashboard, and the PreserVenice crowdfunding campaign, I'd say this was a successful preparation for the VPC's 25th anniversary.

Recently the content of each of these pages has been uploaded to a server, and the content on the pages is being generated directly from the server.

  • Crowdfunding - Significant Steps Towards Launch As we continue through our third week in Venice, our plan to crowdfund our projects has really taken off. Yesterday our team reviewed a matrix we developed to compare different websites to host our platform. With the addition of some very minor adjustments, we successfully have a way of picking a website. Our team is looking to develop the plan to make the website while our adviser is away for the next week. We hope we can make a difference for these projects!
