The Safe Marketplace For Income Share Agreements
How It Works
Students sign income share agreements (ISAs) with a school or education financier.
The school or education financier gives the students funding for their education now in exchange for a percentage of their future income for a set time.
Our platform enables this stage of the process.
After origination, schools or education financiers use our platform to sell signed ISAs to investors for a one time payment.
We manage the sales process and connect sellers with interested 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 invest in a growing asset class with target returns estimated at 8-15%.
Connecting ISA buyers & sellers
Schools and education financiers that own signed ISAs face a mismatch between current expenses and future ISA revenues. They can alleviate this mismatch by using our platform to connect with ISA buyers and monetize their ISAs today.
Investors can use our platform to buy ISAs and earn a long term stream of income with target returns estimated at 8-15%.
In recent years, ISAs have gained popularity as a means to finance education.
Major universities such as Purdue have created ISA programs for their students, while new educational models, such as short-term coding academies, look to ISAs as a financing tool. The idea has proved popular with students and parents, too.
