While studying at Florida International University, Frankie Coletto noticed how students seemed disconnected, even though they often had to work in groups. He wondered how he could leverage his interest in technology to create a virtual desk with access to tools students could relate to and where all students could connect?
Then one day at FIU’s entrepreneurship center, Coletto met Ibram Gaston. They instantly clicked, sharing a passion for the concept.
“We built our platform from the students’ perspective — we went to them to ask how can we help you learn? And poof, PassTheNotes,” says Gaston.
PassTheNotes.com, which won third place in the Business Plan Challenge FIU Track, is a platform for schools to license that gives every student a virtual desk to learn through video, notes, documents, learning games, chat and pictures, and then ties in people to collaborate with. It takes the best way each individual can learn and shares that with the world, explains Coletto. Revenue streams would come from licenses to schools based on the number of students and revenues from brands that will be shared with the schools.
