Mobile Design: OptiMize

Problem:

Student entrepreneurs need a better way  to find guidance when growing their business because it's hard to verify which mentors can be trusted for advice. 

Solution:​

A mobile platform that allows student entrepreneurs to connect with mentors, see current projects other students are working on, and track the progress of their own projects.

Summary:​

OptiMize is a student-led organization from the University of Michigan that offers mentorship, community, and funding to student entrepreneurs who are focused on social impact work. In this conceptual project a team of UX/UI students and I were tasked with creating a mobile platform that allows student entrepreneurs to connect with mentors, see current projects other students are working on, and track the progress of their own projects.
