Social fundraising and engagement for educational institutions
Stellup is a mobile app that helps universities and high schools take alumni crowdfunding and networking to mobile.
Our team understands how old school is to give back to our schools via wires and checks and also faced the challenge of making new high-quality connections, having relocated to more than 10 countries and had a strong need to network in new cities.
Despite theoretically having access to high-quality networks like London School of Economics or Microsoft, we experienced first-hand that there is no good way to leverage such networks. We believe a mobile app like Stellup can substantially improve the networking experience.
Graduates of top university and company networks are increasingly moving or traveling to new places and the growing smartphone use make it perfect conditions for Stellup to be successful.
Stellup is a social fundraising platform for educational institutions available on apps and web. Our mission is to connect institutions and their community (e.g. alumni/students) closer together to bring any educational project to life.
University fundraising ($37bn in 2014in USA) is large but old school as funds are still collected with phone calls, checks or websites with many fields.
We want to digitalise this process and help institutions acquire new donors, raise more funds, while simplifying their process, from building an alumni club to automatic email communications during campaigns
We are unique in the educational space, being the only platform that lets institutions capitalise on the mobile opportunity through native mobile apps and a mobile optimised web.
Moreover, Stellup gives institutions a social networking feature that lets them build and grow their database, while providing their network an online directory where they can search and chat with other members.
