Question Title

* Nucleation point (starting point; initial idea)
What problem, gap, pain point, need, area do you suggest exploring to see if there is a project opportunity? 

Question Title

* Story
A brief story (~3 sentences), in layman’s terms that illustrate the nucleation point.  Try to illustrate how a person or group of people is affected. It often helps to personalize the story by using names as examples. How can their life be different if this problem had a solution (or more effective solution, etc). The story can be a fictionalized stereotype.

Question Title

* Hunches about needs that are motivated by the nucleation point and story:
