Opening the door to higher ed
About the Company
EasyAccess began in fall 2020 with a chance meeting on a basketball court between two people whose mission is to empower all students living in under-resourced communities across the globe to advance their lives through access to quality higher education.
We believe that education is the key to social mobility and that every person has the right to have a quality education wherever they live in the world.
Our mission is to create equity tools for students, schools, and universities to help disadvantaged communities access quality higher education and careers.
Currently, EasyAccess is focused on creating the best possible college search experience for American high school students interested in attending 2 and 4-year colleges. Knowing where to apply to college is the first, and often most confusing, step in the college application process. Creating a good college list is also key to having affordable college options at the end of the process.
Easy Access is a member of the Launch Chapel Hill Entrepreneurship Accelerator's Summer 2020 cohort.
