“I observed that Aurora Solutions, as a company, learns fast and adapts quick. For a growing company, grit is a great asset and taking manageable risks is a faculty that will take Aurora Solutions a long way ahead. I loved the company culture; it's what keeps everyone going!”

Client Challenge

The idea came to us from a startup weekend contestant that our CEO was mentoring. The idea was to transform online fundraising and make it more fun, interesting and social. It shouldn’t be embarrassing to raise money online for your personal wants. The idea won the startup weekend and we took it onboard to take the idea to the next level.

Results

Papafund was envisioned as a crossover platform between crowdfunding and a competition for prize. The platform that we developed allowed people to submit pitches to win a micro-funded cash prize. People were able to submit a one hundred word entry for why they deserve the prize money for their cause. Community members voted for the winner based on the best cause and the top five voted ideas were judged to find the eventual winner. We launched and tested an MVP version of Papafund and briefly featured on Product Hunt in 2015. Papafund project was sunset after a beta testing of about four months.

The Design Process

Our goal was to improve the app's UI for a more intuitive experience and boost the efficiency of student learning. To achieve this, we took time to go through product development stages, such as:

 

USER JOURNEY CREATION

PERSONAS/USER PROFILES

USABILITY STUDIES

TEST SCENARIOS

Key functionalities

For designing and developing new features we needed to focus on the needs of both teachers and students using the app. Our goal was to diminish decision fatigue, maintain the space for creativity for the teachers and generate high-quality learning materials perfectly adapted to students’ capabilities.
