Project Caua is a project to allow qualified students to earn money to help them go to university. Starting with seniors in high school Project Caua teaches them how to create their own business supplying support to customers on a part-time basis.

While students are interested in the service business, they would also like to have “products” that they could sell to their customers, then offer services on them.

We have identified several “solutions” that can be created with an inexpensive Single Board Computer like the Raspberry Pi or Caninos Loucos Labrador plus some common hardware. Already identified are multi-media home entertainment center plus first connection to the Internet using Kodi. Another product would be a Point-of-Sale and ERP system using ODOO. Creating an easy to administer server using Freedombox.

There are more than 400,000 software products on the Internet, so we are looking both for more ideas for products plus people that might help to make these things closer to distribution.
