As students, we always had in our classes a moment where we wished we had someone to help us or explain something to us. But even though there were hundreds of students in our classes, we never got to meet more than a handful of them.
It was shocking to see that the most connected and social generation ever was not able to connect with the people they see every day in class. So in late 2012 we decided to do something about it and created StudyRoom. Unlike most technology products in education that are designed for school administrators or professors, we designed StudyRoom 100% for students.
After participating in the best educational startup incubator in Silicon Valley, we ran a pilot in Fall 2013 at San Francisco State University with just a couple hundred students. StudyRoom officially launched in January 2014 and is now live at over 100 schools across the country.
The amount of collaboration and sharing among students we've seen using StudyRoom has been absolutely amazing. College students finally have a place to connect with all the people they see every day in class and we are just getting started.
