The #1 peer to peer college learning marketplace

Company Overview

Why We Started This Company

As a student I felt like the college market was greatly underserved. 20million college students attend college every year, creating an industry that's worth well over $500 billion. Yet going to school in a modern college feels archaics, and students still don't know what it takes to be successful in class. We created StudySoup to connect struggling students with top students in the class who know what is takes to succeed and can make money helping their peers.

What Sets Us Apart

We let our top students make money! That's right. They no longer need to work in the cafeteria while getting their Chemistry masters. Students can leverage their academic work, sell notes, study guides and more .

Our Keys To Success

Delivering high quality user experience, and customer support has been key to our success and word of mouth growth on campuses. We focus our energy on doing 'campus launches' which helps us gain credibility and large penetration (up to 24%) at each of our locations
