Warwick students shortlisted in national competition for social media app

Andre Wang and Veronica ChangTwo students from the University of Warwick who are behind an innovative new social networking app have been shortlisted in a national entrepreneurship competition.

Picditto is a professional network for artists and designers which enables them to convey design concepts using photos. Users can gain feedback from other experts to enhance communication and interaction within the art and design industry.

It was set up by Andre Wang, who is studying an MSc in Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Veronica Chang, who is studying an MSc in e-Business Management.

The business partners, from Taiwan, are part of the Warwick Incubator, which brings together students from different departments and disciplines to work on setting up a business. They are the first team from Warwick to have been shortlisted in in the Santander Universities Entrepreneurship Awards.

If Andre and Veronica are successful in making it through to the final next month they will go to London in July to present Picditto to a panel of judges.

Veronica said: “The art and design industry is not only about what you see but, more importantly, what you make others see. Therefore, getting feedback from certain and critical individuals becomes the key to success for artists and designers. This is what Picditto aims to do.”

On making the shortlist, Andre said: “There is a real entrepreneurial spirit Warwick, which has inspired us and helped Veronica and I get our idea off the ground. We’re hoping that we can go further in this competition and are looking forward to hearing the list of finalists.”
