What is the problem you found?
Our problem is that kids do not understand or care about finance and money. Finance is tough for kids, who often aren't interested in understanding it.
What is your opportunity?
How might we get kids interested in finance in a fun and interactive way?
Who is your audience?
Young people who are financially illiterate and are not interested in finance.
What Is Your Solution?
Our solution is a fun interactive phone game that encourages kids to save points that they earn playing mini games to earn prizes. These points can be saved up to redeem for prizes at local businesses such as free burgers or milkshakes at local cafe. This not only benefits the child using the app teaching them to save in a fun way it also benefits the business as when they donate products to the app to be used as prizes in doing so they are putting they're business advertised to the younger community and encouraging them ti spend money there.
We have already received potential interest from the Tyalgum General Store and Cafe about our idea for them to potentially donate vouchers for food.
We need assistance to design and create our app from people who are experienced in the tech field
