Team Name: Typed

IDEAS Project Pitch: Typed is the bridge between German high school students requiring authentic information about career paths and school alumni wanting to connect to their school and share their experience. In Germany, alumni networks on high school level are practically inexistent, depriving young adults of role models beyond their families. Typed is an infrastructure for schools that matches high school students with alumni based on shared interests and encourages low-level exchange. Schools form an integral part of Typed by being aided with their alumni engagement and data management. In a later stage, Typed allows local corporations a means to gain visibility without the prohibitive costs associated to managing a social media representation. Co-created by students, alumni and teachers, Typed offers a solution to utilize the untapped potential of alumni networks.
