Our group was inspired by our own personal experiences in the COVID-19 pandemic. The coronavirus has changed our way of life dramatically. Now, we have to be more careful in public spaces and follow safety guidelines to help protect ourselves and others. We wanted to create a project to help underfunded schools and students receive aid, supplies and tutoring.
How We Built It
Our team built our presentation and our app demo through Figma. We were all fairly new to Figma and had very little prior experience in coding.
What it does
We are most proud of creating an app that offers so many different services. We feel like our app has a lot of potentials to save and impact lives because of the accumulation of both internal and external resources we provide.
Challenges we ran into
Our team was inexperienced with coding and new to websites like Figma. In the past 24 hours, we put in our best effort to learn how to use Figma through youtube videos and online tutorials to create the best demo possible.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of our presentation and the overall outcome and feel of our pitch video. We feel like our app has a lot of potential to save and impact lives because of the accumulation of both internal and external resources we provide. On a side note, we are extremely happy with the aesthetics of the app.
What we learned
We learned a lot about analyzing market audiences and developing a startup from scratch. As individuals and as a team, we all learned a lot about the business world. Collectively, we all are fairly new to programming and Marketing so we experimented extensively with Figma and making our startup well planned out.
What's next for COV-Ed Connector
We hope to decrease the suicide and depression rates across the nation that has resulted from isolation due to quarantine. We also hope to see many students finding the track that suits them best, thanks to college alumni guiding them in the college process. Furthermore, we envision our services being used by schools and students across the nation, and possibly across the world to help underfunded schools gain access to resources like masks during the pandemic and school supplies and more in the future!
