Business Pitch

Business Pitch

StudentBackr vows to solve the student-debt crisis by offering a viable funding alternative that disrupts traditional loan or grant system. We combine an innovative and cost-effective way to finance studies with a new investment vehicle. We want to empower students to fund their future, while offering investors/Backers a way to optimize both social and financial returns. US student debt alone is over 1,3 trillion dollars and the global crisis is growing: StudentBackr is part of the solution.

What makes our business innovative

What makes our business innovative

We create both social and financial value for our Backers, by allowing them to positively influence a student's future AND providing them with monetary return on investment. Beyond that, we give students a voice: a platform to share their educational stories and ambitions, and a way to rally Backers around those aims. We don't just provide the platform, but give professional customized coaching to each student: from designing a captivating project to fully optimizing their campaign marketing.

We are the 1st platform just for students with a unique combination of reward-based donations and loans. We will soon offer a comprehensive turnkey solution to help foundations and educational institutions manage their grants more efficiently. We are disruptive in 3 aspects: COST: far more attractive than current bank loans; INNOVATION: first to market in Europe and USA; SUSTAINABILITY: creation of a virtuous circle where today's students will be tomorrow's contributors (both loan and donation).
