The Capstone project

Our Capstone project is the culminating and integrative experience of our Accelerator program. For DLP, capstone will be the final project to end your rotation, synthesize what you have learned, and solve a real business problem.

The Capstone project is a dynamic learning opportunity that will have the following benefits:

Improve confidence and self-perception: This project will help you prove your potential to yourself. Looking back upon a project that took months of hard work and dedication is rewarding, and will help you realize how much you are capable of.

Increases rigor: A capstone increases the stakes, helping Accelerators focus on their energy towards a final project and the continuation of learning. The capstone is a safe, guided space to finish learning.
