|Elevator Pitch||“Notesolution is an online note sharing platform for post secondary students.”|
No one should be surprised that NoteSolution formed two years ago. Founded in September 2010, their team has built a platform for online note sharing specifically for Students. No longer students themselves, the NoteSolution team spent their summer vacation revamping the website, giving it a fresh new look and placing on their landing page a simple message to greet students and users:
“Boost your grades with the best notes and study resources”
Based on a “freemium” model – an element sure to attract students more than just periodically – NoteSolution allows students to search for study notes complementary to their courses, paying for the notes through NoteSolution’s system of credits. Students can earn more credits by uploading their own notes to NoteSolution, adding to the resource pool of notes.
As a “freemium” service students also have the option to buy more credits from NoteSolution. They also have the option to exchange their credits for cash rewards – a bonus for the keeners and honour rollers.
NoteSolution’s team composes of recent graduates who understand the needs of university and college students. Driven by a simple wish that they had the same kind of service when they were in school. It’s hard for us to avoid the school-based entendres and puns, but their little after-school project deserves a high GPA. [Editor's note: I think a 4.0 should do nicely ]
Notes written about the startup have all been favourable, with coverage throughout the halls of the Internet including sites like TechVibes (which you can read here and here), Building43′s John McKenna, Canada’s Business News Network (BNN), CP24, Yahoo (via PRWeb) and MacLean’s Magazine.
