Peabj, an app founded by Kamila Khasanova and Jordan Murti, has been a valuable resource for business students at the University of South Florida (USF) since its launch. The app aims to help students connect with others for collaboration on projects, and over 200 students at USF have already downloaded and started using it.
One of these students is Sarthak Pattnaik, who used Peabj to introduce badminton to his friend, Nicholas Pacini. Both are students at the MUMA College of Business at USF and credit the app with helping them establish a startup company. According to them, Peabj has fast-tracked their professional goals by connecting them with the right talent and serious investors, which led to their placement in competitive programs like Hustle, which provides funding for their startup company.
Despite being currently only available at USF, Peabj plans to eventually be open to students nationwide. Its ability to facilitate connections and collaborations with real-world applications has proven its worth among business students at USF.
