As a student at the university, you have an entrepreneurial spirit and have dreamed of starting your own business. You have noticed that the coin laundry in your dorm is always full and crowded. You saw an opportunity to start a business that picks up laundry at the dorms, launders the clothes, folds the clothes, and returns the laundry in a single day. The first step to starting this business is to create a proposal for the university to approve the service to have some operations within the dorms. You started by conducting a survey of your fellow students. The next step is to process the survey results and create a proposal for the university.
