Graduate Financial Association
Hi! I am MBA student and starting my third company. I have heard awesome things about 99designs so excited to try it out.
Our company offers targeted financial advice for graduate students and recent alums (navigating student loans, buying or renting, money markets during school, etc).
We believe that helping graduate student manage their personal finances will enable them to do great work in the world and not be overburdened with financial stress.
We have received seed funding from a number of angel investors and are launching our beta site with Pagelines theme for WordPress.
I have worked with virtual teams through oDesk and eLance and am excited !
Professional Graduate school students (MBA, JD, MD, MsE to start). Market size of ~1 M people. No direct competitors but related include mint.com and finaid.org.
We have interviewed hundreds of potential customers and they say saving money and ease are most important to them.
We believe a clean, simple, design is the best for our target market. Potentially with a 'growth' color.
Elegant logo that would appeal to educated, relatively high-income earners. Need to look somewhat blue chip because people will be trusting us with their money but not too stuffy.
Creative as you want!
Thanks in advance!
