The Safe Marketplace For Income Share Agreements
How It Works
Students sign income share agreements (ISAs) with a school.
The school gives students an education now in exchange for a percentage of their future income.
Our platform enables this stage of the process.
After origination, schools use our platform to sell signed ISAs to investors for a one time payment.
We manage the sales process and connect schools with ISA investors.
Students pay a percent of future income for a set time to ISA investors.

An innovative contract for financing education
Students enter into ISAs to get financing for their education today in exchange for a certain percent of their future income for a set number of years.
ISAs offer students a competitive alternative to private student loans while offering investors an opportunity to participate in the education finance market.
Connecting schools & investors
Schools that offer ISAs to students face a mismatch between the current expense of educating a student and future ISA revenues. They can alleviate this mismatch by using our platform to connect with investors to get financing tailored for educators.
Investors can use our platform to participate in the education finance market.
