Draper University is proud to announce that among its incoming Fall Class, five particularly innovative students are running crowdfunding campaigns to raise money for their tuition and travel expenses. The incoming students are a great example of the type of character students who attend Draper University exude: smart, thought-provoking, ambitious, and above all, entrepreneurial.
Among the students who are running campaigns are three outstanding international students. Olya Prodaniuk, a female entrepreneur from Ukraine, is the founder of Hailcloud, a peer-to-peer platform for people to securely store their precious memories. Female entrepreneurs are already in the minority globally, and Olya is pushing boundaries by planning to attend Draper University. In addition to Olya, Louis Mikal from Lithuania is an engineer who is working on a platform to help people save money when grocery shopping. Lastly Edmilson Rodriguesn from Brazil, is crowdfunding on Brazilian platform Kickante and plans to launch his project, Dream Education, a social business that aims to help fulfill dreams of education.
Two incoming students from the United States are also crowdfunding their tuition on the Go Fund Me platform: John Scianna from Miami, Florida, and Sequoia Blodgett from Los Angeles, California. John is a Bitcoin enthusiast and entrepreneur; Sequoia is the founder of Love Uncut, an intuitive relationship app for couples.
This isn’t the first time Draper University students and alumni have used crowdfunding to raise money. In total Draper University students and alumni have raised over $250,000 for their tuition and projects, including The Bistro, the smart feeder that recognizes your cats face and Peanuts4Peanuts, a peanut butter to help malnourished children in Haiti.
