Select the stage that best applies to your solution
Start-Up (a pilot that has just begun operating)
The Need: What social or environmental problem are you trying to solve?
Innovation and Scientific Research rates are reaching horrible figures these days . Egypt has a quite low number of people who have the ability or the resources to successfuly innovate or invent new methods or products to help the country and make it excel from all the various aspects . The fact is there are many awesome brains which have brilliant ideas that they want to start working on , But the major problem is that they lack the guidance or the tutor to help them with assembling their inventions or to guide them through turning their ideas from the paper to reality , They don't know where to go to get help about fulfilling their dreams or projects or they don't have sufficient funds to get supervised or tutored specially that the poverty rates are increasing in a devastating way .
The Solution: What is your solution? Be specific!
This will be the first website of its kind . This website will enable each student to suggest a certain project or invention he has always dreamt to create , then the high board of scholars - specialised people , academic tutors , and PHD holders - who will in most of the cases be volunteers and those who look to supervise projects and inventions and innovative ideas , to take a look at all the requests of creative ideas and projects that they received from students . Approved projects will be published on the website and students from all over the country and those who have access to the website can choose to work on the project they choose from the website - of course those related to their fields . in this way students of similar interests will be able to connect with each other and work on a certain project and even receive guidance from the tutors on the website . Listed projects will be supervised by the tutors and advertised to massive companies through marketing experts .
The Solution: Why is this solution innovative for your company and industry?
Students from the university where i learn will no longer have to worry about the poor research facilities or laboratories or inconvenient tutoring or teaching , they can now rely on this website to connect with other students they don't know but share same thoughts , to successfully enhance their ideas and build their models through being assisted by top quality tutors . Competitions will also be held at the end of the year concerning the best project and the best team .
The Model: Walk us through a specific example of how your solution makes a difference; include your primary activities.
The Marketplace: Who are your peers and competitors? Identify others also working to address the needs you are and what differentiates you from them. What challenges could these players pose to your success or growth?
unfortunately the problem of research and creativity hasn't been addressed ever in our country with the same approach i am taking . we are advancing in a very slow rate as i said earlier .
This Entry is about (Issues)
Founding Story: We want to hear about your "Aha!" moment. Share the story of where and when the founder(s) saw this solution's potential to change the world.
Being part of a large charity organization , i travel to poor places all accross the country to supply food and clothes to the poor . During one day , while i was visiting a college to advertise for our organisation . I spoke with a student about the major obstacles he faces in the learning process . The guy was a genuis which i later knew from his friends and had a quite high GPA . He told me that he wanted to create an advanced vehicle that would save alot of space and solve the congestion problem . but the obstacle he is facing is that he is studying an electrical engineering degree , therefore this invention has no relation with his major and he has no idea about where to go to get help or which students who are of same abilities and creativity can work with him for his invention . He had awesome knowledge of mechanical engineering . I then started to think why can't we create a "facebook" for the genuises to make the willing students achieve their dreams to benefit their countries
What has been the impact of your solution to date?
10 teams have been formed , where each team comprises of students from universities from all around the country . Each team work on a certain project and they are supervised by experienced tutors . Students are delighted that they have been able to connect with students of matching interests and even be able to work with each other . Projects include the following fields : mechanical , accounting , tranposrtation and many other fields ! Students from different economical standards can join each other without bothering themselves about the relatively high cost of materials they use or the supervision they get .
What is your projected impact over the next 1 to 3 years?
I want the impact of the website to increase from 10 projects to a one thousand projects or even more . I want to have an enormous database of students and expertised people and be able to connect them together in the easiest way possible . I want to hear that my country has been able to implement a new project or technology that has been assembled by students from the website .
What barriers might hinder the success of your project? How do you plan to overcome them?
What is the benefit or value you're creating for your business?

Students are across the country are happy with the idea and welcoming the concept of having a research and invention enhancing website to aid the students . Many Officials have also contacted us to start providing the needed funds , materials , and laboratories to create the various projects .
