Additional Questions

Who is your customer?

Students and scholars; schools and universities; companies looking to hire talent in business, design, and IT; event and conferences organizers globally; government authorities that want to interact with youth.

What problem does this idea/product solve or what market need does it serve?

The Opportunity Feed app collects, sorts and features business and career opportunities in one place as well as matches them with the user profiles.

What attributes will make this idea/product successful? Why do you believe that those features will create success?

The initial research and surveying among the readers of AlphaGamma revealed that there is strong demand for an app that collects all of the career opportunities in one place. We created our own fully-functioning prototype on Android to test the product/market fit (see screenshots of the initial release). We were able to identify the need, create an app and now we are going to roll it out while we are self-financing this from the revenue that comes from AlphaGamma (less than 2% of startups get paying customers in the first year of foundation). Given the fact that the oldest team member is 26 years old, we believe that our IT and business skills combined with the young and hungry spirit will make this happen.

Explain how you (your team) will execute to make this idea/product successful? What gives you (your team) an advantage over others already in the market or new to this market?

Our team possesses a blend of skills in IT and Business Development; its team members while in their 20ies, already have experience in a corporate environment as well as they previously joined other startups. There are other initiatives that aggregate student competitions and opportunities and that existed on the market for 5-6 years, yet they were not able to execute a mobile app due to the lack of the right IT talent and business acumen. We are confident in our ability to get the Opportunity Feed mobile app to a whole new level. UPDATE: Opportunity Feed 1.0 is already out and we are currently working on the second edition of the app.
