Android App Development - Back End

$1750 plus equity

$1750 plus equity



E-start is a new venture from a current student at Queen’s Masters of Entrepreneurship and Innovation program. This company is an educational video content provider for preschool to high school age kids in Nigeria. People in Nigeria have little access to textbooks or ways to learn, and E-start looks to solve this problem. Most people in Nigeria have access to Android phones, and have periodic access to the internet. The project will focus on developing this Android App.

Subscribers pay online from our website (or offline) and obtain a code. The code will enable the subscriber to download the app, and browse for content from a store online. Once downloaded, the content can be accessed on the subscribers’ device offline.


Estimated deliverable is end of January/ early February but flexible. You are not expected to begin working on it much until after exams.
