With Medifund we would let these prospective healthworkers raise the funds they need for their education.And we would also let health practitioners raise funds for equipment,personal difficulties, research, treatment.This would be done via crowd donation and crowd lending/micro finance
We use python for our development. The technology is not near as crowdfunding is not new. Its what its used for that makes us stand out
We met at a startupweekend event and we chose to work together because we believed in the idea and started working on it during the startupweekend event.
Why we're doing this
I have a med stud friend but of recent due to circumstances she had issues with finances and about to quit med school.Being my friend, I was looking for ways to help her. I searched for medical school crowd funding sites but didn't find any and sites like kickstarter.org didn't provide the needed services. So i came up with the Idea of starting one and decided that startupweekend cebu was the best place to get a team for it.We are the first doing this but we using a proven model.
