Problem Statement

Clinical Science - AMED3004 was a new opened unit in 2018 S2. The unit course required a mocked platform for the students to practise and learn crowdfunding, startup.

Final Brief

  1. We will not reinvent the wheels since the user requirement was relatively urgent (the dev period ), but to do PoC on some existing open-sourced crowdfunding projects;
  2. We finalise the selected open-sourced project(s) and make changes based on the requirments of AMED3004. The open-sourced project developers will be credited in our final delivery.
