Who is the target audience for your idea and how does it reimagine the cost of college?

Higher education ecosystem composed of 3 parts. 1)Knowledge "barter" through matching students with different expertise & needs; 2)Students get accredited from educational experiences; 3)paying your way through HS & college with sponsors who would pay for student's school via participation in projects. Government subsidizing funding via tax incentives for educational donations; "pay forward" programs where scholarship/ load holders repay through funding another student through their ed.

Creators: Sowmya, Gourab, Thanatchaporn (Mind) Apivessa, Roshini S. Thiagarajan, Pidchapon (Fai) Niruthisard
