Every year, talented, ambitious students around the world are forced to abandon college educations, simply because of a lack of money. We plan to change that status quo.
Seeing the individual
Banks and microloan companies avoid lending to students because they see students in general as high-risk. We look past the generalizations to identify trustworthy student borrowers.
We focus on growing industries where a postsecondary degree can as much as double a graduate’s income.
We vet partner institutions to protect students from for-profit colleges and educational scams.
Innovative credit model
Our model weaves together academic, behavioral, and other data to get a picture of each applicant.
A mission worth believing in
Our team members have worked directly with students at institutions Jump will serve—some of us have been those students ourselves. We’ve seen kids forced to give up on promising careers because they couldn’t access as little as $750.
We think that’s unacceptable, and we’re determined to use our experience and skills to help out, listening to students long the way.
