Our Work

Design

We’re creating services and tools to help the millions of resource-strapped students in America. Our approach is unique. These are the principles that guide us.

Don't give students more work.

We identify the most important barriers and do everything we can to remove them.

Interactions should be personalized, actionable, and timely.

Information alone is often intimidating. Clear guidance delivered at the right time inspires action.

Every element of an interaction must be informed and validated by the behavior of students.

To us, being “human-centered” means hundreds of exposure hours and never delivering a support that hasn’t been informed and validated by our students.

Don’t require users to move to new tech platforms; meet them where they already are.

We believe in the power of tech but are tech agnostic. We engage students where they already are.
