Alissa commented on StartupApp [Refinement Update]

Our big ideas:
- bank as a referrer to the tool
- build up a business plan while going through various training modules
- modules include: video chat with an expert / past student, connecting with past learners, interactive training with embedded spreadsheets etc., discussion boards
- by the end of the training program, you have completed a business plan
- business plan could be sent directly to bank with information about how you did in the course
- this would be coupled with additional information about the applicant to help bank give them a loan
- you would also now be part of a network of experts / people who could support you, help you get connected in other areas, etc.
- you would be expected to help other people in return as they go through the training
- you would have to give feedback to help improve the course
- you would have a certificate at the end you can use for other business tasks as well
