What it does
Our web app crowd funds student loans with our smart savings account.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We had to build a web app instead of a mobile app because the ffdc AISP API returns a web url for consent. We could have created a pop-up or iframe within a mobile app, but we think that provides a bad user experience.
We struggled setting up the API using .NET.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We made it work!
What we learned
To engage as many experts as possible early on as we run into trouble. Agile methodology is best for hackathons.
What's next for nineTeen
We love our product, so we are going to build it for the world. Finastra provides a whole suite of APIs for our entire workflow, so we have a one stop shop for everything. We will spend the coming months validating our idea.
