Business model

Making it easier for college students to buy and selll things to each other on campus using a simple and easy to use mobile app

Competitive advantage

College students need many things that traditional marketplaces such as Amazon and Craiglist fail to capture.  That is why students resort to using Facebook groups to try and buy and sell their items on campus.  unlike Facebook, Buckets allows it users to filter through and search for items they are looking for to find them faster.  Also, for student ticket exchange, we are going to allow students to just take a picutre of their tickets and transfer to other students without having to meet up.
