Ublend - the education network

About this idea

Ublend is an education network. We believe in helping students make the most of university. On Ublend (web+app) students can see what's happening on campus and engage in exciting conversations with like-minded students from their own university and around the world. From getting help with a problem set to discussing the latest trends in neuroscience.

Until now we have focused on interaction between students. Over the next couple of months we are building tools that will allow for more efficient communication between students and professors. This will allow us to build critical mass within universities faster as well as monetise the platform by licensing certain premium features to universities.

We launched Ublend at the University of Oxford, and now have 20,000 users (15 % unique weekly active) across 12 universities in the US, UK, Denmark and Switzerland.
