Heard of shark tank? It's essentially that, but smaller. Many of us who have attended hackathons are hoping to turn their projects into real-life startups, but this often hard without funding. We are hoping that our platform helps these students and other developers to put their projects out there for investors to see and help make these small projects a reality!

What it does

FishTank is a platform where students and other developers can post their projects online in the hope of finding investors to fund their startup. This platform can also serve as a way for people to get ideas based on other's projects.

How we built it

Our team was composed of 4 members, so we decided that two work on the website platform and 2 work on the mobile app. We used the flutter framework with google firebase (and other API's) to create the mobile app. We used JQuery, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, Firebase, and BlockStack to create our website version.

Challenges we ran into

Some challenges that we ran into were that there was no support for block stack for flutter, so we had to improvise and use another service for the mobile app. Getting to use block stack on the website was somewhat of a challenge, but we got it at the end.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are very proud that we were able to create a functioning mobile app and a website in this short period of time that we had to create this project.

What we learned

I have learned that creating our project on both platforms is a very hard task in a short timespan, maybe next time we will go for only one of them.

What's next for FishTank-Business

We hope to make FishTank an actual successful startup one day in the future, it would be really nice to see our creation come to life.
