The app “Peabj”, developed by Kamila Khasanova and Jordan Murti, is currently being tested at the University of South Florida. It has already attracted over 200 users and its goal is to help college business students connect with one another and find collaborators for projects.
One positive outcome of the app has been the partnership between Nicholas Pacini and Sarthak Pattnaik on a startup initiative. They were able to connect with like-minded peers through the app and work towards their shared professional goals. This led to them securing funding through programs like Hustle, which funds student startups.
Peabj has enabled business students to establish meaningful relationships and access resources at a critical time in their academic and professional careers. Its expansion to serve college students across the country will provide even more opportunities for students to connect and grow professionally.
