The team sought to address a global problem with new, innovative solutions in a sustainable way with local sector experts. With more innovative, creative and partner-led solutions across developing markets and local communities, the team conducted detailed local research. They clarified the problem definition, elaborated the design and refined the Droplet solution, ultimately choosing to collaborate with local schools to leverage existing, positive community infrastructure. The final business plan was developed by a team of five MBA students and two Royal College of Art students and won first prize in the 2013 Business Plan Competition. IT S TIME FOR THE WEB TO SpEAK Matopy is the brainchild of Sam Jewell, Research Associate at the Helen Hamlyn Centre at the Royal College of Art, and was brought to market by a multidisciplinary team of four MBA students. Matopy aims to revolutionise the way people interact with the web by applying speech and sound technologies and a more innate way of accessing online content. Matopy turns websites into audio, making them easy to understand and navigate through listening. By using different voices, music and sound effects, the audio experience becomes as rich as the colours, fonts and layouts of the visual web. The product is of great value to individuals with visual impairment. Matopy was one of eight projects entered into the 2012 Business Plan Competition and was awarded the first prize of 10, imperial.ac.uk/business-school/emba 15
