Why it Matters
Meet the Team
We are FinalsClub.
FinalsClub is an education technology startup founded at Rutgers University. Backed by HealthStartNJ LLC, our team and our investors are helping improve the ed-tech space by building and launching software marketed towards college students.
We pride ourselves on being one of the only ed-tech apps on the market that is made for students, by students. More than anything, FinalsClub is a modern alternative to other education technology companies, all of whom favor the educator over the students.
FinalsClub is 21st-century learning at its finest.
We find that students are rarely provided an outlet for expression, conversation and collaboration outside of their professors scope. FinalsClub empowers student discourse without the pressure of administrative overlook, and improves the process of communicating with others at major universities.
Being students ourselves, we understand the difficulties of finding study buddies to work with. Attending a college lecture can be a daunting and arduous task that can leave students overwhelmed. By providing a seamless platform we allow students to find and befriend their peers, with the intent to learn and grow together.
Finding academic help whenever you need is nearly impossible at major universities. FinalsClub allows students to work at inconvenient hours, on their own schedule. By providing a medium for online learning, we empower students to maximize their education at any point of the day.
We live in a space where students rely on each other for help, in and out of the classroom. It is nearly impossible to find peers to work with during inconvenient hours of the day. Understanding this, our application seamlessly allows students to find help wherever and whenever they need it the most.
There is a demand for instant help outside of the classroom that our application will provide. By tailoring our platform towards students, users are given the opportunity to interact outside of just the professors scope, and grow independently. We hope that through these interactions, students will learn faster and more efficiently all while making friends along the way.
