Turn connections into opportunity. Personalized, mentor-focused communities for students & alumni

Many are questioning the value of a college education. Only half of US alumni strongly agree their education was worth the cost. The way students value and experience their education has changed. They have new expectations: - Job outcomes, not just a degree - Social and digital, not isolated and static - Experiential, not theoretical 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. PeopleGrove connects every student and all alumni with the network and resources they need to realize their full potential before, during, and after their time in college. Founded in 2015, PeopleGrove works with over 250 institutions worldwide, including Stanford University, the University of Michigan, Johns Hopkins University, Wellesley College, and the University of Maryland Global Campus. Headquartered in San Francisco, PeopleGrove is backed by Reach Capital and other leading capital partners.
