High Concept Statement

Tinder for Studying with College Friends you didn’t know could be your friends

 

Status Quo

Students in college can find it really hard to meet friends or to meet people to study with for classes. This will be a platform specifically for college students that find it hard to find friends or just simply want more friends, so that they are able to connect with each other through the common platform of college.

 

Competition

People do it through meeting others through classes, social media, group chats. But those are all apps that have different purposes and they are already a little bit too dated in most millennials eyes and there needs to be something else out there to address this age old problem.

 

Solution

People would rather use our platform because it is easier to get what they want from the platform and it will get them to know other people that they didn’t even know they had things in common with. And it will be a dedicated platform just for college students, unlike the competition who’s primary purpose is something totally different. In this day and age people would rather meet people through their devices than in real life and they have an excuse which is college to meet in real life unlike other apps.
