“…Nearpeer is an example of a company with a specialized product designed to improve college student engagement and, because of improved engagement, increase the numbers of students enrolling at an institution as well as increase the student persistence rates. I like the fact that one of Nearpeer’s clients utilized a RCT study to determine the app’s effectiveness. I also like the effective design that allows for a quick installation and implementation of the product. The pricing of the app is a bargain if the average implementation is as successful as CSUN’s. The combination of all these factors leads me to believe that Nearpeer could have a bright future.”
