About Matt

Since late 2014, I've been working with two others (plus summer interns) to build a website to help students succeed in college while preparing for a career. The site is up and operational now at skoolar.com.

We are looking for an energetic, fun person to join us who would be focused on marketing, promotion, and user acquisition in exchange for equity.
