About

UM UNSERE SEITE AUF DEUTSCH ZU GENIESSEN, KLICKE BITTE HIER. DIE BELOHNUNGEN KÖNNEN HINGEGEN NUR AUF DER ENGLISCHEN HAUPTSEITE ERWORBEN WERDEN.

 

loquilove not only provides you the means to learn or teach a language, but also the reason and motivation to do so: it gives you and people you care for new perspectives.

 

WHAT IS LOQUILOVE

LOQUI = SPEAK, LOVE = DO GOOD

On loquilove you can easily connect with tutors and students from across the world and interact online to learn or teach any language. With each language lesson you take or give on the app you will automatically do good; either by donating part of the tuition to an education project or by supporting an individual directly.

Become a loquilove tutor or student! Giving or taking live lessons will be as easy as using Skype or ordering an Uber. You can conveniently search students/tutors by skill level, schedule lessons, provide ratings and pay directly on the app.

Can you imagine supporting an education project or an individual simply by learning a new language or teaching your mother tongue?

 

WHY WE BUILD LOQUILOVE

loquilove will give people perspectives through language skills, create jobs for native speakers who become tutors and support children and entrepreneurs in developing countries.

As a result, any way YOU engage with loquilove will give someone a perspective – this is our ultimate goal!

HOW YOU LEARN OR TEACH

loquilove offers the most effective way to learn or teach a language: one-to-one, in person, live and interactive. Taking a lesson will be just as easy as calling an Uber as the app offers convenient search, scheduling, rating and payment tools and options.

TESTIMONIAL

 

 

MEET OUR EDUCATION PARTNERS

Once the app is up and running, you will – by taking or giving language lessons – support education projects of two very reliable and well respected Swiss foundations.

BPN – Business Professionals Network (our Partner in education of entrepreneurs to create jobs)

WHY WE USE KICKSTARTER

This Kickstarter gives us the possibility to

  • validate our idea with a broad audience,
  • gain initial funding for the development of the app, and
  • grow our community.

 

HOW YOUR FUNDS WILL BE USED

The targeted funding goal of CHF 75’000 (which is about the equivalent of USD 75’000) allows us to develop an optimized web app in English which will enable you to take or give language lessons in any language – conveniently and online – and thereby support education projects. It will at the same time help us grow the loquilove community through collaborations with universities and institutions on the one hand and targeted marketing activities on the other hand. In short, it will allow us to build a meaningful product you will love and to redeem all the perks you bought. And if we beat our goal, we will be able to build an even more sophisticated version of our app (please check our below-mentioned PUSH THE LIMIT section).

PUSH THE LIMIT

Our vision is to create a new online live tutoring and language learning platform where you can do good and have a big impact. To reach this, we will not stop with a full functioning web app in English. If we reach the funding goal – with your great support as a loquilover – we will push the limit and work hard to achieve even bigger goals. Reaching the stretch goals, we will create a more sophisticated version of loquilove and thus boost the engine that does good. The more funds we get, the more good we can do. You do the math! 🙂

With your great support we are aiming for these ambitious stretch goals (in CHF).

Risks and challenges

There is no doubt that this is a huge project and we are aiming high. But we are looking forward to every single challenge and are very eager to tackle all possible problems. Nonetheless, in order to fulfil our vision and to create a world full of loquilovers, we need to pay attention to some critical points.

VALUE PROPOSITION
This campaign allows us to validate our value proposition. While other language learning platforms have already demonstrated proof of concept, Kickstarter enables us to test our USP which is “doing good”.

APP DEVELOPMENT
We want to develop a sophisticated product. Even though we have validated our planning and development approach with various third parties, the programming of the complex features might cause delays.

We evaluated several software developers. The award of the contract will depend on the amount of funding we receive on Kickstarter.

TEACHERS AND STUDENTS
We have the classic chicken and egg problem. With this Kickstarter campaign we expect to attract more students than teachers. This might cause supply shortfalls on the teacher side at the beginning. To prevent this from happening, we will cooperate with international universities to grow the number of teachers.

FOUNDERS
The development of loquilove does highly depend on the two founders. Plane crashes with the founders on board or the like would have a negative impact on the development of loquilove. Aaaaand we must admit that we don’t have a no-flight policy! So, let’s hope for the best! 😉

LOVE
Working on an app that creates perspectives for so many people in so many different ways is what motivates us. We trust in YOUR LOVE to get our project up and running.

With your awesome support we will deliver the next generation language learning and increase social welfare.
