Additional Questions

Who is your customer?

Our main customers are Universities and they exist everywhere around the world. Students will be beneficiaries or just free users.

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

There is a huge gap between high schools and universities. Learners aren't exposed to higher learning environment, they make misinformed decisions, dropping out and changing from one course to another.

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

We have developed the MVP now, we need help to take our business to the market and refine the application. To make this happen we need money to fund our marketing strategy in reaching out to our users. We also need an android developer to develop an android app for Govarsity. We need an expert advice on how to tap the market between the ages 16-35. We need computers mainly to do or admin work and develop the app. Having all our necessary needs we will be able to reach our milestones before it is too late, and they will help us to combat the high rate of unemployment by producing more graduates. Having the equipment will help to boost our application admin tool, therefore we will now be able to measure our success in each category and see what can be done to those whom we not performing very well. We will be able to go and do workshops at universities and high schools and get learners and students register with us and utilise our app.

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 application offers a communication platform where by a student can share their experiences and others can comment and learn from them. A student can ask anything they want to know about higher learning and right people will provide answers to those questions. We also offer university in forms of videos and course discussion platforms. You can also search for courses, careers and universities. The problem we are solving lives within us, and we've not heard about it from the media nor seen it from TV, however we've experienced it by ourselves. We've struggled through this problem and the motive behind our idea is that we don't want to see our brothers and sisters suffer from the same problem that we've suffered from. We are bringing the solution in a more friendly, fun and appealing way to the youth and we've a great understanding of the youth's needs especially when it comes to the media.
