What is StudySoup We are an online peer to peer marketplace where students can buy and sell notes and study guides similar to Amazon and Ebay Started by a group of students we aim to enhance the way students study in college to take the power away from the textbook industry and put it back where it belongs in front of students In short we help students in the two areas they need it most dollar bills and GPA points Where is it located StudySoup is based in San Francisco California but is a remote team meaning its team members are located all over the world The founders of StudySoup went to school and live in the Bay Area of California and Santa Barbara while the other team are located in Salt Lake City Utah Canada and the Philippines StudySoup is proud to be a business that has far reaching borders and is looking for students across the nation to join our team What is the purpose of Study soup The purpose of StudySoup is to empower students to take education into their own hands help out their classmates and make some much needed money StudySoup splits all sales of materials 5050 Our purpose is not to make money off of college students it is to help college students make money Many students find notes posted by their peers to be more informational and helpful than a textbook or even lecture slides posted by their professor Our model allows students who already take good notes to be rewarded for their hard work and help out their classmates Its a winwin Why would someone purchase notes from StudySoup College is a competitive environment Improving GPA by 1 point can be the difference between getting into an impacted major or not The job market is tough and giving a student that edge is crucial Sometimes situations come up that force a student to miss class and it is important to stay uptodate with class materials before falling behind Other students may prefer to pay attention in class rather than furiously attempt to pick up on everything the professor has said Some students may be looking for that extra resource to push them from a B to an A Do we have school affiliations StudySoup is an independent startup company out of Silicon Valley While StudySoup is not officially affiliated with any school the goal is to eventually partner with schools to integrate the service within their networks Right now StudySoup is focused on recruiting top
