What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

Our mission is to be the nationwide long distance ride sharing app for all college students. The CarPo platform is more than ready to accomplish this goal, but due to our restricted budget we have been unable to produce a hard launch. Therefore, the majority of the funds raised will go strictly to marketing efforts to produce a hard launch at as many colleges our budget allows us to do. We have an integrated marketing strategy that we will follow at each university, but we need capital to be able to initiate this plan in order to succeed in becoming the first nationwide long distance ride sharing app for all college students.

CarPo has just recently produced a soft launch over a two week period at the University of Florida and Florida State University. It was a great success during the 2 week activation! Unfortunately, the restricted budget brought an early end to the campaign that was intended on being a 6 week activation. We are seeking $30,000 to continue our soft launch at University of Florida and Florida State University for the spring semester. 

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge is the supply and demand aspect. The platform needs to ensure that it has enough of a user base for drivers and passengers to be able to link up and travel to where they both desire.
