Our project began with a simple idea of how to help those people who need it the most such as our ageing population and those with mobility issues, with the support of Gemstar in guiding us on how to understand the market, understanding our personal brand and future business brand.
Over the course of our masterclasses, we began to form our product and how we would deliver it to those who need it the most.
We explored the best possible market strategy and how that translated into a solid business model.
Commonwealth Bank of Australia helped with fine tuning our business model.

Collab is an automated grant consultant that offers value added services to its consumers. It works like LinkedIn where consumers get access to the different types of grants available and is time efficient with the availability of a grant generator. Consumers can choose to pay for the value-added services where different packages of grants are offered as well as data analysis of the industry and successful grants applied for in the database. In addition, consumers are kept updated with upcoming new grants and any changes in grants in which consumers are informed should they be eligible to apply for the grants.

Career (K)night (CK)
CK is an online job portal that targetting odd-hour jobs and night/evening shift jobs (hence the word play with Knight/night). While online job portals are aplenty, there is a gap in the evening/night shift niche. As more people are increasingly becoming dissatisfied with the standard office hours, we envision more work opportunities in the future to cater to non-standard hours. By targeting a niche market, CK is building an application to target the needs of niche users.
On CK app, besides the normal job search filters such as salary/qualification, there is an additional filter by working hours. For example, if a user filters by work hours from 4pm – 11pm, a list of job offerings that allows for that time arrangements is displayed.
The idea evolved from a similar idea presented at the Innovate Singapore competition. We made the pivot after taking advice from mentors at Gemstar to target a smaller niche.
