The StudentLoan Tech Story


StudentLoan Tech is Founded

Stuart Smylie and Randy Lupi co-found StudentLoan Tech to bring student loan solutions to everyone. Stuart's expertise in student loans and Randy's experience in financial consulting laid the foundation for building a company primed to tackle the student loan crisis.


Putting the "Tech" in StudentLoan Tech

Shortly thereafter, Joe Soltzberg joins the team. Joe's background in software development and mobile applications helps the team to build the technology necessary to digitize and automate student loan solutions at scale.


Partnership with Equitable and iPad App Launch

StudentLoan Tech develops an iPad app for financial advisors. The app automatically determines loan forgiveness eligibility, calculates the optimal repayment plan, and aids in enrollment. StudentLoan Tech partnered with Equitable to distribute this app to their team of financial advisors.


Expanding and Extending Our Reach

StudentLoan Tech begins building a direct-to-customer app and website in order to serve more clients more closely. The team also begins building more products and partnerships to help in other facets of student loans, such as refinancing.


Direct-To-Customer Launch and Digital Marketing

The direct-to-client app and website is put into beta testing and the new refinancing service launches with more additions coming soon. The team begins to incorporate targeted digital marketing to better reach customers in need.

Meet The Team

We have a diverse team with strong backgrounds in student loan solutions, financial consulting, and technology. We are currently pursuing seed round funding, eventually leading to a Series A round. We are looking for interested investors and/or advisory board members to grow StudentLoan Tech further. Feel free to connect or reach out to any of us with any questions or inquiries.
