Student Living Connect

Student Living Connect

We are establishing a network database that will connect local students with possible subleasees and subleasers. From personal experience, the process of trying to find a sublease whether it'd be for the summer or for students graduating in December and needing people to take over their leasing contract, can be extremely stressful. Our idea is to simplify the entire process. We’re creating this entire centralized network where subleasers will create a posting, and our purpose would be to do all of the advertising and marketing for them so that they never have to lift a finger after that. The main problem is that people are usually studying and preparing for final exams and final papers while trying to go around campus advertising their apartment. So OUR job would be to have these people continue studying while we take on ALL the responsibilities of marketing their apartment not only around campus, but also in our website which will attract subleasees from all areas. We would accept a standard fee payment method, ONLY if we are successful at matching two people up, and essentially saving one person thousands of dollars and providing another person a stable form of living for however many months they sign for. So, you sit back and relax, and simply “Let US do the Matching.”

College Cabs

David Deveney, Zachary Katz and Travis Damsker

On a campus where nightlife is the norm among a majority of students, there lies a huge demand for safe transportation. The majority of students must resort to the inefficient taxi cab industry and request cabs through a dispatch office. Our generation currently is going through a data boom where college students are constantly using their smart phones for just about any task possible. As smart phone technology advances we find ourselves in a time where convenience is the key to efficiency. When technology advances at an exponential rate, it is only a matter of time for other industries to follow. CollegeCabs plans to combine the high demand for taxicabs with the convenience of the smart phone to revolutionize the taxicab industry. Our mission is to capture the night life transportation experience by creating a phone application that will allow students to connect and request transport from the nearest possible taxi cab driver based on their location. Using GEO locations, we will maximize efficiency for both customer and driver. From requesting the cab to the final payment, CollegeCabs will provide efficiency and convenience to both customers and cab drivers.
