Name of the App: Tealder

Tagline: Teams don’t work without teamwork

Problem: Many students face difficulties  finding the right teammates to work with on a group project. They either end up compromising their interests just to stay in a team or are burdened with most of the work in a given team. Peers do not necessarily have the same academic/career interests, it’s not easy finding people best compatible to match those.

App Description: A mobile application for the purpose of networking in universities for collaborative projects and research work. Connecting people with an academic purpose based on common subject interests and skills.
