Problems in finding study abroad information:

Social Networks
- Friends and Family: Limited network and limited information
- Online Forums: Disorganized and not personalized. Not vetted and unreliable

Education Consultants
- Expensive: range from US$5,000 to US$50,0001 per year for college apps
- Leave students disconnected from the school and culture
- Generally cannot answer questions beyond admission process

Overseas University Fairs
- Stressful environment. Limited time to obtain information
- Not necessarily students’ target schools

Student and Alumni Connections
- Currently, no easy way to find mentors who are current students or alumni

sQoolink's value propositions:
1. Expansive network of current students and alumni
2. Low cost, transaction-based business model
3. Convenience - mobile app and web platform. Ask and answer questions anytime
4. Insider information - reliable information, direct connection to schools
