Business students at the University of South Florida (USF) are able 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 and is focused on building professional connections among business students. The app’s founders have funded it, and it has proven to be a valuable resource for business students at USF, facilitating connections and collaborations that have real-world applications.
One of the students who found a connection through the app is Sarthak Pattnaik, who introduced badminton to his friend, Nicholas Pacini, after meeting him 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 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.
Although currently only being tested at USF, Peabj has plans to eventually be open to students nationwide. The app has proven to be a valuable resource for business students, facilitating connections and collaborations that have real-world applications. It’s an excellent tool for networking and building professional relationships among college students.
