Hi Amy, Thank you for your comment and questions. I'll answer your second question and my team can respond to your first question.
What group of interns would we target first for proof of concept?
When brainstorming for this part, we thought of design students. There are many highly talented design students; however, not everyone will have opportunity to show their work due to some constraining factors including money and connection. We hope that these students are able to work together with web entrepreneurs to show their work. Additionally, students from top design schools have a lot of opportunities to network and show their projects to curator and professionals from respective industry. This platform provides opportunity for talented students coming from smaller schools to show their projects and receive feedback from professionals including entrepreneurs from this field.
We also think of business and communication students whose expertise in marketing will help to get the ideas out there and to generate sale.
