2017: Group 8

GROUP 8 – WANDERER

Description of Product/ Service/ Innovation:

A mobile application that creates connectivity among travellers from diverse backgrounds, who are travelling in nearby areas. It aims to facilitate encounters and opportunities for real life communication amongst them – laying emphasis on the “human” aspect (face-to-face).

 

Target Group:

Travellers

 

Stakeholders Involved:

Restaurants and local attractions

Government agencies

 

What Stakeholder Need Does It Address?

Use it as an advertising platform, bringing in more revenue for them

Faster actions taken for emergency cases

 

How Does It Build on existing Technology/Processes?

We use technology to bring people together in reality. Besides the excitement of meeting new people in reality, we can share our journey with others on the platform.

 

Your Group’s Pledge
(What Follow up/Future Action Will You Take?)

We believe that this application has great implications across the experiences of many solo travellers. This is an opportunity for our group to be leaders of disruptive change in the aspect that we have chosen, and we will continue to support this to the best of our ability if the application is realised in the near future.
