Over 3 million students on US college campuses struggle financially to get into or through college. Up to 15% of students drop out because of financials, while others downgrade their education to find a more affordable option.

Founded by Manu Smadja and Mike Davis in 2014, MPOWER Financing partners with universities and investors to provide loans to high-potential students that currently are unable to access affordable financing at traditional banks. In addition to providing students with access to the financial resources necessary to attend and complete college, MPOWER builds students’ credit histories, provides them with personal finance education, and offers essential financial products to prepare them for life after college.
