Business description: At PeopleGrove, we believe the way students experience and value their education has changed. They are seeking an academic experience that addresses: - Job outcomes, not just a degree - Social and digital, not isolated and static - Experiential, not theoretical In fact, many are questioning the value of a college education. Only half of US alumni strongly agree their education was worth the cost. Meanwhile, supportive relationships most influenced, even doubled, graduates’ perception that their education was worth the cost. We believe relationships and community are key to student success and engaged alumni. That's why we built PeopleGrove: a unified solution for relationship-driven career success. By making mentors, advisers and coaches accessible, we help students from all walks of life access new opportunities and achieve their career goals. PeopleGrove is on a mission to connect every student and professional with the mentors, advisers and network needed to realize their full potential and find a fulfilling career. PeopleGrove's mentorship and advising platform has been successfully launched at the world's leading institutions, including Stanford, UMUC, K-State and many more. It turns out the student journey aligns with a new hire journey. We're excited to be working with Intuit, Qualcomm and CooperVision so that there employees can better access experts and coaching within their own organizations.
