Company Overview

We want to connect students so they can find where they belong and achieve success.

We believe that Higher Education has the power to transform lives. It’s a melting pot of cultures, experience, knowledge and passion that creates an invaluable life experience. It’s a tricky journey to navigate though. There are many types of universities and courses and it’s important for students to find the right path for them.

A team of former HE professionals and talented developers, we help students thrive through sharing their experiences, effortless technology and the smart application of data.

Together, we bring institutions easy-to-deploy tech, and first-hand experience on how to make the most of it. A simple widget on their website allows prospects and ambassadors to chat and foster a sense of belonging – even before applying. Over 100 years’ collective experience in university marketing and recruitment means we help our partners make it happen – from set-up, to training their ambassadors, through to driving engagement.

Backed by Logitech, Goldman Sachs partners and supported by Strategic Advisors from the biggest HE governmental entities, we’re growing rapidly. Since launching 24 months ago we’ve expanded to work with 140 institutions across the world.

Be part of a team that pushes our boundaries even further and continues to provide expert support for partners, as well as making a difference for students.
