Every Friday there’s a mingling event so you can find out what other people are working on; we even have a live DJ! Both this, and Futurospective, are tech ideas which improve people’s lives, in some way.
Commerce requires a meeting of the minds between buyer and seller, and it’s just not happening. The sellers can’t explain what they’re selling to the buyers, and the buyers don’t buy because they don’t understand what the sellers are selling. There’s a mismatch between the two; they’re so far apart that they’re barely speaking the same language.
The site is customized for each university, linking students to mental health services in their own community. It also allows friends and professors to use the assessment program on behalf of students they’re worried about who wouldn’t use it on their own.
