Thank you for your feedback, Irene! We are looking to move our idea forward and hopefully implement one day. Please feel free to suggest features that you would love to see at our eduHarmony platform.

Thank you for your feedback, Shane. As a matter of fact, we uploaded a business canvas to clarify how eduHarmony will help students to make college more affordable and help them navigate through this experience.

Also, one of the key aspects of our idea is to have sponsoring companies funding our scholarship matching cycle and providing in-house professionals as mentors to our outstanding students. The sponsoring company receives positive public relations (students will be evangelists for the sponsoring company) possible tax credit and the students will receive career guidance through mentors. For more detailed information, please review our business canvas.


Also, thank you for the collaboration suggestion! Our team would love to collaborate with the Brainery.xyz platform.

Thank you again for your feedback and please let us know how can we improve our updated idea.

Thank you for your feedback, Patricio! Our eduHarmony team appreciates your great suggestion. As a matter of fact, we updated our idea and incorporated the career advancement aspect into the sponsoring company responsibility of providing mentors to our outstanding candidates.

Our team realized that matching students with mentors from sponsoring companies would be a key aspect of our idea. The student will get exposure to the corporate culture before joining the company through coach sessions and on-campus visits offered by the mentors. Also, he would have a champion inside the company that would guide him through the best internship fit instead of blindly applying. We would not guarantee an internship. However, we believe that our outstanding students will have a greater chance to network their way to an amazing opportunity inside that company or industry.

I hope this answer was helpful and we would love to collaborate with ONE-STOP Education.
