Stage of Idea conceptual stage, planning stage, start-up stage

Explain your idea in details:

At the heart of our business, Elucidate, is a mission to provide clarity to high school students with respect to their vocational paths post-graduation. Inspired by the career uncertainties that weigh down on peers in our own Year 12 community - where 43% of the cohort have no idea what they want to do after high school - our online platform assists students in forming an informed, holistic, and realistic vocational goal that can add purpose and motivation to their studies. Through this solution, we aim to address 2 of Unicefs Sustainable goals, bolstering the Quality of Education in a highly academic-centric schooling system that neglects to inform students of their prospects after high school whilst improving the mental Health and Wellbeing of students. Our platform, available both as an app and an interactive website, interfaces between high school students and advisors - industry veterans who have worked personally in various sectors. We facilitate a safe online environment where students can privately discuss the insider details, pros and cons, and degree requirements of prospective career pathways with each respective advisor. This framework not only bridges the gap between high school and the workplace, but also allows students to develop deeper focus and fervour with their academics driven by the certainty of their vocational pursuits, relieving the qualms that mentally debilitate senior students due to a fear of the uncertain future.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Through our platform, high school students gain personal access to a myriad of industry veterans in popular vocational fields such as medicine, engineering, and finance. Upon the purchase of a $40 monthly subscription, students create their own profiles that detail their vocational aspirations and current circumstance. They then select specific advisors (to a maximum of 10) relevant to their interests from a pool of hundreds of registered professionals, and engage with them in an online conversation regarding their vocational interests or industry-specific information such as interview techniques or admissions testing.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

The main on-cost incurred is the hiring of developers to create a secure and user-friendly mobile application and website, estimated at $20,000. As our product significantly overlaps with the objectives of Career Advisors within schools, and aid their role in providing vocational clarity to students, we will seek funding from the Career Advisor Association (CAA) of NSW & ACT to fulfil our initial financing needs for an equity stake of 20 percent within our business. As such, we also gain the CAAs assistance in promoting our product to the students, as they have a direct incentive in the success of our operations with an equity stake. Bulk subscription discounts may also be offered to careers advisors in schools, creating a win-win situation that simultaneously bolsters our subscription volumes whilst addressing the needs of vocational assistance in high-schools. The rewards to industry veterans that chat with students constitute the main ongoing cost for our platform. These advisors are paid on a pro-rata basis of $2 per conversation that students initiate with them. Coupled with a stringent ratings system that allows students to give public, anonymous feedback to the advisor they have engaged with, this creates a direct financial incentive for industry veterans to not only register to the platform to earn extra income by disseminating their expertise, but also ensures the quality of the advice. No further finance is required to pay for these rewards, as they are only incurred when an end-user purchases a paid subscription. A minimum of $20 EBITDA is registered for each sale, as students are allowed access to a maximum of 10 advisors in their $40 subscription, with each advisor paid $2 per conversation. Hence, the business becomes more than self-sustainable on the front of ongoing platform maintenance costs.

Your profile

This project started with Me (Paj Sae-lim), John Xie and Roger Chen. As an attempt to create a change to the current zeitgeist of the subpar Australia-wide academic future clarity. Nearing the end of my final school year I experienced uncertainty with regards to what jobs or vocations to undertake in the future, and I felt that this uncertainty has impacted my motivation in academic success as well as my mental health. Further research allowed me to realise the problem not only plagued me, but over 43% of NSW high school students, where we, as final year students had little to no idea of what we were going to do in university or rather what those degrees would lead us in the future. To alleviate such uncertainties, I created Elucidate addressing 2 of Unicef's Sustainable goals; Quality of education and Mental Health and Wellbeing. Where we as a company, assist students in making informed, holistic, and realistic vocational goals that add purpose and drive to their studies whilst promoting mental health.

Hello entrepreneur welcome to the YCEC Campus. You have a great Idea and I wish you all the best in this competition.
So I will like to share with you some tips. According to Jack Ma, This Is What Your Life Should Be Like Between 20 And 60 Years Old.

Before you turn 20 years old,be a good student.
Just to get some experience.

Before you turn 30 years old, follow somebody. Go to a small company. Normally, in a big company, it is good to learn processing, you are part of a big machine. But when you go to a small company, you learn the passion, you learn the dreams. You learn how to do a lot of things at one time. So before 30 years old, its not which company you go to, its which boss you follow. A good boss teaches you differently.

Between 30 and 40 years, you need to think clearly whether you want to work for yourself, if you want to be an entrepreneur.

When you/re between 40 and 50 years old, you must do all the things that you are good at. Dont try to jump into the new area, its too late. You may be successful. But the rate of dying is too big. So when you/re between 40 and 50 ,think about how you can focus on things that you are good at

But when you are 50 to 60 years old, work for the young people. Because young people can do better than you. So rely on them, invest in them, and make sure they/re good

When you are over 60 years old, spend time on yourself.
On the beach, sunshine, its too late for you to change.

And I agree with Mr. ma!

To change the world, invest in youth.
The secret here is helping those who want to be successful, help young people. Help small guys. Because small guys will be big.
Young people will have the seeds you bury in their minds and when they grow up they will change the world.

Our message for today!

Sincerely,

Umar Imam.

Hello, it is great to know that you are aiming to achieve SDG 3 Good Health and Wellbeing as well! Especially in times of COVID-19, it is critical for us to take initiative to strengthen the medical resources available to our community. We wanted to suggest a few tools to you, since we found them extremely helpful for remote collaboration. Basecamp is a virtual collaboration tool that helps you communicate with your team members about different tasks, while Notion is really useful when it comes to team-task prioritization.

Like you, we are passionate about helping improve the health of our community. As a team, we are currently producing and distributing masks to people in high risk groups for COVID-19. We would really appreciate it if you could give us feedback by commenting on our project entry at entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/28/18345/

Thank you!
Angela, Miru, and Sarah

My dear [email protected], Your idea providing a platform for the education of high school graduate on entrepreneurship is a great one. However, to add to your solution, I am sharing with you questions from one of our trainings that can help in refining your idea.

What business model will I follow to implement this idea?
What methodology or strategy will I use during different processes of implementing this idea?
Which are the processes I have to go through until the finalization of the idea?
What means or tools do I need to implement my idea?
Which are my potential collaborators, investors?

I honestly suggest that before you submit your idea or project, please ask yourself these questions and even if you have submitted your idea, do remember that we still have opportunity to refine our ideas and resubmit. I hope that you find this beneficial to your idea.

Also, please do create time and take the campus online trainings as the trainings are there to help campus members understand what it is to be an entrepreneur.

My [email protected], your idea intending to provide post high school leavers with vocational skills through online interraction between veteran industry players and student sure is unique. The secular education has failed to prepare students to the reality in the society so among others that are striving to help children realise their worth right from the classroom wether digital or physical classrooms like my idea Eduheal, I belef your idea can also make a huge impacts.

While this idea is worth execution, I suggest you also take the online campus training to gain more insight, understanding, skills and knowledge to successfully execute the idea and meaningfully impact on the society. Also should you come online any of these days, please do consider supporting my idea Eduheal to enable me provide educational opportunities to millions of Nigerian children without access to education. Support me with your votes and comments @https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/26/17805/

Thank you for supporting my idea with your votes and comments
