Four budding entrepreneurs have designed a web-based platform - a digital noticeboard which could end hassles for students of different educational institutions who have to run from one campus to another to share information about their colleges and important events.

The website named Alumni of Cult Innovative Department (ACID) aims to bring together college-related events and information under one umbrella. The need to share information about annual function and different fests led them to design the website whose highlight is digital notice board called ‘eMiLi’ (electronic mark up integration for large interaction).

“ACID will help students by minimising their efforts and saving their time. Earlier, students had to use social network websites and emails to disemminate the information about the event of their college. Now they can just upload the information on the digital notice board,” said Rahul Kundu, one of the core members of ACID’s development team which is a mix of engineers and art students.

The team has already updated database of more than 10,000 colleges of the country and are updating details of about 100 colleges everyday.

The website uses five components such as information on student, alumni, faculty, staff and administration. Any student can simply log on to the website and upload notifications about any event for free. This information can then be accessed by anyone across the country.
