Stoodnt was launched in 2015 in Palo Alto, California, by Harvard Business School Alumni. It launched recently in India, its first international market.
Stoodnt is a global marketplace, focused on helping millions of students fulfill their aspiration of getting an international education. The global technology platform does this by connecting them and their parents to high-quality college admission counsellors, US colleges, admission insights, guidance and admission tools. The counsellors on the platform collectively bring several hundred years worth of experience and have successfully guided over 1000 students into top-tier colleges and universities across the world.

Rising interest in India
The number of students from India studying abroad is increasing consistently, growing by 10% in 2015. India had approximately 4 lakh students studying abroad in 2015, about 25% of them in US colleges.
As incomes rise, so do global aspirations and competition for good universities in India. Many parents are opting to send their children abroad for undergraduate and graduate studies. Stoodnt provides these students with the tools to achieve their dreams.
Stoodnt’s research found that the market for college admission counsellors were opaque, highly fragmented and had a mix of quality, biased and un-objective counsellors. The biggest challenge was finding counsellors who could be trusted to keep the student’s interest in mind.
How Stoodnt Helps
Stoodnt makes the admission process objective, convenient and productive. It has a rigorous process for onboarding and training counsellors, and tools built in to monitor and measure service quality and end-to-end customer experience.
Stoodnt connects parents, students, counsellors and colleges, making the process of interaction, communication and collaboration seamless, productive and transparent.
Stoodnt’s founders are passionate about the vision as it not only helps students in something important but also gives back to society – they are committed to providing free services to underprivileged students with aspirations to study abroad.
