Cuaround, a social messaging app essential for college students that automatically links current students and alumni.
About this project
A social messaging app essential for college students that automatically links current students and alumni. Cuaround encourages students to better interact with their classmates by sharing videos, pictures, class notes, cross-connection with different schools, finding student tutors, challenging students on custom special tasks, etc.
Simply sign up using your school email address to verify your identity and get contact access to millions of students nearby and across the country. Expand your network with like-minded students who share the same interest and ambitions as you do.
Getting to know all the students that are currently attending your school just got easier. With this app, new, international and transfer students will have a smoother transition into their new environment.
As an international student such as myself, I know how hard it is to get acclimated into your new environment and developing relations with your peers. Having an app like Cuaround that automatically links you with your classmates, makes socializing much more convenient. Not only does the app link you with your classmates, but the apps interactive mapping system allows students to create relations with nearby students or students across the country.
As we gradually build a large user base, we want to make a huge impact in the educational field as well as helping these students match up with the best internship jobs around their area and entry level jobs for newly college graduates.
We are raising $8,000.
app completion amount left:
$3,546.88 (It will allow us to test over and over for bugs to make sure our product is working properly before our launch by the end of the month.)
$3,500.00 (A 90 second explainer video of the app. Depicting the key components of the app in the video. How the app works, what we want to achieve and how it helps students.)
Risks and challenges
Every business venture is a risk. Even with a well laid out business plan, forecast, etc. One does now know what the future holds unless you have insider trading information.
Challenges that may arise: slow scale ability, slow user base acquisition, company management issues, funding issues, partnership issues and just not marketing the app/business well enough.
Tackling these challenges will consist of experienced board members. A strong business model & business plan. Great chemistry within the company through adversity. Feedback from the community will allow us to know the pros and cons of our company.
