Three bright youngsters put their heads together—Goel, who is the youngest student at the University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business; Garg is a student at Stanford University; Jewell has won a Rhodes Scholarship—and PrepMe was born.
According to Goel, what sets PrepMe apart is their high-quality curricula written by top scorers; curricula that continually adapts to each student’s individual needs; and provides personal tutoring and essay coaching from students at elite universities. PrepMe accepts nothing less than high scorers who are put through a rigorous screening test before admission to the program. Finally, PrepMe offers the unparalleled convenience of being completely online, a feature that instantly wins with parents tired of chauffeuring kids to a variety of classes.
Founded four years ago, PrepMe is a growing business venture which is also engaging not-for-profits to help get its courses out to underprivileged students who may not otherwise be able to afford it.
PrepMe has approximately 20 graduates with another 40 students currently enrolled. “I would like to believe it was our well-balanced team, our strong advisory board, backed by a solid product that has already shown great results … saying anything more would be presumptuous of me,” says Goel modestly with a hint of ambition for the future. www.prepme.com
