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

OVERVIEW:  

  • US Development Cost: USD $62,000  
  • Mexican Development Cost: USD $20,500  
  • Our Development Cost: USD $10,000  
  • Development time: 5 months  
  • Release date: February 2019
  • Reach: 4000 students the first year   
  • Total reach capacity: 55,000 students (our goal for the next 3 years).

We are a group of 4 mexican entrepreneurs developing "Clasmap". A digital platform that allow users in Latinamerica finding the best scholarship programms in private intitutions.

WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?  

We have experience working in the academic industry, either as a teacher or as program manager. While working with education institutes in various projects, we saw how complicated it is for families in the lower class to provide education for their childs. This is a result of the high tuition cost of private education and the limited offers in public educacion. Just in Mexico, about 8 millions people (Aged 16 - 22 years) do not work or study. Mostly cases because it is not possible achieving private education after public offer filled out. 

For that reason, we've decides to create "Clasmap", a digital platform that will let it's users find the perfect school for themselves or their childs, apllying for specific scholarship programms with the benefit of a lower tuition cost. The user will be able to search and identify many educacional institutions and filter them according to their needs, such as cost, schedule, distance and even academic programs.

 HOW DO WE PLAN TO INVEST THE FUNDS?  

  • Institutions Scouting: 260 institutions - Elementary schools: 50 Highschools: 80 Universities: 30 Learning workshops: 100  
  • Locations: 3 - Morelia (Michoacán) Querétaro (Querétaro) León (Guanajuato)

Development:  

  • Server  
  • Interfacing  
  • Hosting and storage  
  • User Experience & User Interface design  
  • Authorization and Security  
  • Managing listings  
  • Booking process  

Testing and Improvements:  

  • Automation tests to remove bugs  
  • Acceptance tests (manual testing)  

THE IMPACT  

  • 1st. Year: 4000 students  
  • 2nd. Year: 15,000 students

FUTURE FEATURES:  

  • Scholarships for childrend living in poverty .
  • Scholarships for reinsertion of people released from detention centres.

WHAT ARE WE DOING AT THE MOMENT?  

We have being working on it for 5 months, that´s why we published our project on Indiegogo looking for capital that allow us keep working the next seven months until we finisht the Beta version and test its reach. Our office is based on my mother´s house. One room is enought to acomplish big goals.

 WHY FUND THE PROJECT?  

You will be contributing to help someone else´s children go to school. Helping to build a better next generation in Latinamerica.  

If you believe in the project as much as we do, you will see the scope that this platform can reach internationally, supporting millions of students across the globe. The project is only the way to reach a much greater goal, create large communities where anyone benefits from them. And you have the option of being one of the first to help create this great ecosystem. 

This financial support will also help prove how much potential Clasmap could generate. The more quantity is collected, the more impact and the faster we can make this idea come true. 

CHALLENGES

One of biggest challenges is to not reach the capital we need with which we intend to start the race until launching the first prototype in the coming months.

When wanting to build a large community, one of the great initial challenges will be to attract a considerable critical mass of users so that the application can reach its real potential.

OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP  

We know and understand not everyone can support us with capital. You can also support us by sharing this on your social media channels by getting the word out about CLASMAP. Remember to use the Indiegogo share tools to help spread the word! ¡We deeply appreciate your support! - ¡Muchas gracias amigo!

Risks and challenges

The challenges we face at the moment are mostly convencing intitutions to introduce the app into their academic community.
Also creating an interface attractive enough to interest the students and encourage them to interact inside it.
Our long-term objective is to position the platform as a high-impact tool so that more and more people can have acces to education in Mexico.
