Go to Project: Inside high solutions.
Inside High is a concept that helps prospective secondary school students and in school students purchase books from well recognized book stores at a discount price.Here in Ghana the prizes of most secondary school books are high so students entering secondary school find it hard to acquire the necessary books for the terms work.
I the student will visit the various book stores and negotiate price tags of books,request for discounts and print coupons with the discounts on them. These when sold out to students, will give them the opportunity to buy books at the said discount on the coupon.

The Need: What problem are you trying to solve?
I am trying to solve the problem secondary school students go through in buying their books.It is really frustrating for students to move from shop to shop searching for books and their prizes.Inside high solution will target a large audience of the schools in and around the Ga East sub metropolitan assembly of Accra, The schools number to approximately 50.
The Solution: What is your solution? Be specific!
The project comes in the form of negotiations with the book stores for discount allowances on books patronized by students.Inside High Solutions prints the discount coupons that will have bar~code features for security measures and sells them to students at an highly attractive and affordable price.This is a form of mutual aggrement since the book stores will get more customers and the money raised from the sales of coupons, will be reinvested to print more coupons for students. If the venture succeeds we will not focus on Accra but extend it to other parts of the country.
The Model: Walk us through a specific example of how your solution makes a difference; include your primary activities
The basic principle is to give students coupons to buy discounted products.
In Ghana, this is a new thing. I believe I am serving as a link between the students who otherwise cant afford to buy books and stationary and the book stores.
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?
So far I have not identified any competitors. As already stated this is something new in Ghana.
