BizzyB was developed by a team of:
- 1 Project Manager
- 1 Product Manager
- 8 .NET Core Developers
- 5 Angular Developers
- 1 UI/UX Designer
- 4 QA Testers
- 1 DevOps Engineer
- 2 Business Analysts
Our team developed BizzyB for a Hawaii-based nonprofit organisation called Bizgenics that specializes in creativity, entrepreneurship and innovation programmes. That was the main idea behind BizzyB – creating a collaboration platform for students, entrepreneurs and innovators.
It is a first-of-its-kind learning platform where traditional and contemporary learning models are used in combination with cutting-edge information technologies to create a next generation education system.
Problem It Solves
With the rise of computer automation, knowledge-based jobs are becoming less valued and soft skills are getting more and more important. Because these skills can’t easily be automated or replaced by computers. But unfortunately, skills like creativity, innovation, emotional intelligence and leadership are still absent from the education curricula.
To be competent in the 21st century world, students of today can not be confined to this curriculum. They need to develop their soft skills while not eliminating traditional knowledge-gathering education. But there was no blend of traditional and contemporary learning styles available to students or innovators resulting in a scarcity of creative development in the young generation.
To solve the problem with soft skill development, the idea of BizzyB was proposed as an online entrepreneurial-based learning platform where students complete goal-oriented projects. It focuses on problem solving so that students and entrepreneurs can prepare for the business world where solving problems efficiently is the main objective.
