Business students at the University of South Florida (USF) have a new tool to connect with others for collaboration on projects, thanks to the app “Peabj”. Founded by Kamila Khasanova and Jordan Murti, the app has already been downloaded by over 200 students at USF, who are using it to build professional connections among their peers.
One such student is Sarthak Pattnaik, who met his friend Nicholas Pacini through Peabj. Both are students at the MUMA College of Business at USF and they credit the app with helping them establish a startup company. According to them, Peabj has fast-tracked their professional goal by helping them locate the right talent and connect with serious investors, leading to placement in competitive programs like Hustle, which provides funding for their startup company.
Peabj’s founders have plans to eventually make the app available nationwide, but for now it remains exclusive to USF. Despite this limitation, it has proven to be a valuable resource for business students at USF, facilitating connections and collaborations that have real-world applications.
