Agnosia Media

Agnosia Media LLC creates high-impact educational experiences, from short videos, courses, service projects, mentoring, and internships. Agnosia Media LLC specializes in exploding the boundaries of the classroom, whether that means recruiting guest speakers or scheduling weekend field trips with local organizations. Students return to the classroom having reflected on their experiences, ready to integrate them with their academic experiences of facts and theories into constructive action, towards their career goals and towards their community. Their motto is, Not just knowing. Doing.

When Randall began Triad Startup Lab, he had a specific business model he wanted to test. It was rather complicated, involving at least four different stakeholder groups (college faculty, college students, local businesses, and local nonprofits). Triad Startup Lab pushed him to do structured interviews with members of each group and gave him a larger structure to plug those interviews into so he could start looking for patterns.

Thanks to the structures and processes that Randall learned during Triad Startup Lab, he can think about each business model separately, and how they reinforce one another to create more value for stakeholders.
