We Build Connection First & Foremost
"Connection is the starting point of our journey on Loopd. Prof. Brené Brown says "Connection is what gives meaning and purpose to our lives." Most research on student retention shows that students dropout due to feeling isolated from the community and support available, this is frustrating for an institution since often huge investments are made in providing these opportunities.
The reasons for this paradox is that opportunity and support are poorly communicated to students, often through boring, inconvenient and cluttered channels such as website blogs and email. The barrier to entry for a isolated student is simply too high! At Loopd we solve this problem by engaging students in a conversational newsfeed, this gives students a voice and sense of community belonging.
