Adspire Marketplace

Project mission:

Our mission is to offer a virtual marketplace for presenting and seeking expertise for further development of student projects by attracting additional team members and/or funding and resources.

What problem are you addressing?

As an entrepreneurial university, UT engages students in many group projects yearly. But in most cases, even the projects that can potentially become a solution or inspiration for a business or societal problem still need to be included. They are nerve-racking pitches to potentially interested parties such as companies, investors, governments, or even academic bodies. The biggest obstacle to giving more publicity to students’ projects is their unreadiness to be seen by the world. They are usually prepared by teams of students that attend the same program and lack certain skills and expertise, such as programming, design, marketing, budgeting, etc.

Project solution:

We want to offer students a way to connect with likeminded students that possess the missing knowledge of the respective idea/project. It would be a university project marketplace where students can reach out to each other and develop ideas further. For instance, students will be able to put their created product on the market and be contacted by fellow students that have the knowledge and skills to expand it further. On the other hand, students with specific skill sets that are needed can be on the lookout for ideas and projects they find promising and contact the teams.

Additional comments:

We are planning to participate with this idea in the next UT Challange!
