Do you love designing things, or building things or wishing you could build things and could not think of what to build? Do you want to get involved with a startup and you have no ideas to work on or where to start? We have identified a set of problems whose solutions could make a big difference in the World. During the IAP, we hope to find solutions to these problems, and build prototypes. At the end of IAP, we hope to have a big party to show off our prototypes to friends, enemies, potential business partners, etc.
