Yilan's co-founder search details

Why Yilan would make a good co-founder

Elevator pitch for startup:

Beehive is a digital database of crowdsourced study guides and solution sets for standardized exams and college classes. Students will view raw uploaded content for free, but BeeHive will curate the top study guides and content into a study package that students can buy. This saves them time from sorting through uploads on their own, and possibly being lead astray with wrong solutions. Technical features include the following: 1) Filtering out low quality study guides and wrong practice problem solutions using an algorithm and domain expert human curation (in-house tutors that have taken the exam or test before). 2) Quality control features for what type of content is accepted into the premium product category, and 3) In-text PDF search tools for users to quickly navigate to the problem or subject specific document, instead of searching by class, teacher, or other generic filters.
