About Us

Who we are

We believe socio-economic mobility should be borderless.

Higher education is key to this mobility but, unfortunately, millions of students struggle to get into or through school due to financial constraints. We’re tackling this pervasive issue by working with investors and universities to provide an innovative and forward-looking education financing product for students from around the world. We’re not just a just a student lender – our goal is to set students up for academic, professional, and financial successes.

In short, we’re global nerds who care.
