MY UNIVERSITY OUTREACH

 

TECHNOLOGY I ENGINEERED LICENSED TO 250 UNIVERSITIES WORLDWIDE DUE TO PARTNERSHIP PROGRAMS

 

BZP PRO SMART SKINNER RIGGING SOFTWARE I AUTHORED BEING USED IN THE COLLEGIATE CLASSROOM AT DEPAUL UNIVERSITY.

 

NOTE: DUE TO SOFTWARE'S "EASE OF USE", SOPHOMORES IN COLLEGE WITH LITTLE TRAINING ARE ABLE TO TECHNICALLY CONSTRUCT CHARACTERS AT THE LEVEL OF INDUSTRIAL LIGHT AND MAGIC AS SEEN IN THESE PHOTOS.

 

NOTE: FACEBOOK LLC, CEO'D BY MARK ZUCKERBERG, WAS AT APPROXIMATELY (FROM WHAT WAS REPORTED) 85 SCHOOLS WHEN THEY RECEIVED A "SERIES A" INVESTMENT. BZP PRO, THROUGH OUR PARTNERSHIP STRATEGY, WAS AT 250 SCHOOLS, HOWEVER, WE DID NOT PURSUE A MAJOR INVESTMENT GIVING UP EQUITY DUE TO THE MULTIPLE FORTUNE 100'S ACQUISITION INTEREST.
