Student to Build React Native app

I am looking for a college student to develop an app for a startup. The core functionality of the app is written in React Native, and it has been tested on the Android side but not on the iPhone side. I need a lot of work on the look & feel of the app more than anything. This could be a huge opportunity for a talented student to get in on the ground floor of a tech startup focusing on the sports training industry. The app will connect to custom designed hardware that I have developed. Timing is urgent, as I plan to begin beta testing in the fall.
