StudentBackr is the 1st crowdfunding platform just for students: easily raise/borrow funds for your tuition, accommodation and all education costs!
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.
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).
