 Students are an important audience for Pivo - we already offer a digital student card option for selected universities.  What new and innovative  payment-related  features or services could benefit all students in Finnish universities or universities of applied science? Your task is to come up with a service concept that can be integrated into Pivo and will be beneficial to majority of students in Finland, both Finnish and international. Your imagination is the only limit - the only requirements are that the new service or feature is feasible and easily scalable across Finland.

Criteria for success:
A succesful final product will consist of:
- A well thought-out, scalable service concept (backed with data)
- a clear business case
- a (visual) demo to support the concept (e.g. wire frames, clear customer journey..)
