Cultivating a Generation of Freelancers

As an undergrad at Brown, Adam worked as a freelance videographer (and on-campus in media services).

He wasn't alone.

80% of college students work part-time while in college, but mostly working in the cafeteria or tutoring. Jobs that don't particularly help them find a job when they graduate.

Adding to this, what a "job" looks like is changing rapidly.

By 2030, most of the US workforce will freelance.

Pangea.app helps students start freelancing while still in college instead of working on-campus jobs that don't prepare them for the future. 

Our platform provides students everything they need to find, invoice, and manage clients.

In the last 12 weeks, students have sent more than 500 invoices using our platform to clients doing work that helps them build a portfolio, make an impact on a businesses, and pays them more than an on-campus job.

16mm College Students in the US work part-time.

Students earn ~$120bb a year doing part time work. With a 20% cut of every invoice, this a $24bb net revenue opportunity.

But this is only the beginning.

We provide the infrastructure that students use even after they graduate.

By capturing student early in their work life they'll use us throughout their professional careers.

But why would a company want to work with a student instead of someone on Upwork or Fiverr?

The same reason Facebook and Google hire armies of interns... They want to work with people who have the potential to join their team full-time some day.  

Working with a student is not only an investment in society, but also an investment in your company. 

Companies have paid students more than $350k through our platform, and our cold emails to prospective clients have 10x the industry average response rates.
