  • Leapsheep – Implementing in Artificial Intelligence Framework – Semester 1
    • Opportunity closes Sunday 24 January 2021
    • LeapSheep have been investigating how we can build AI into our business model. We have identified several use cases – including, but not limited to – our ability to share our tools templates and guidance with our customers; creating pitch deck assessments using AI to analyse company pitch decks. The focus of this internship would build on the work we have done already – partly to research and then communicate to our team the possibilities of AI that are relevant to our business model – as well as build AI to suit our prioritised use cases.

    • Opportunity closes Sunday 24 January 2021
    • LeapSheep introduce our clients to hundreds of other startup founders, investors, partners, lawyers and other service providers. Currently we use a manual system that relies on email and the memory of our Business Building Advisers. This system is incredibly valuable to our customers – many of whom have been helped to find co-founders or been introduced to contact who can help them build their business faster. We want to create a system that will simplify and automate the identification of connections between the right people at the right time so it’s much easier for our advisers – allowing us to automate the introduction so that the individuals are connected quickly and effectively. We have already done the work to document the existing process and identify the current problems and existing use cases.

The outputs of the project will be a functional requirement document, investigate IT solutions to the business problem and provide with recommendations for the best design concept and platforms for the digitalisation. Recommendations and solutions would need to consider how SAAS would obtain ongoing support for the solution and cost (both upfront and ongoing costs).
       
  • Aceede Holdings – Preparing your Qualification and Junior Database Tasks – Semester 1
    • Opportunity closes Sunday 24 January 2021
