At the age of 11, Femi Adebogun built products that would automate work processes.
At 16 years old, he sold his first major product and would continue to
sell his services to several firms.
Adebogun, who was then attending
Franklin High School, said he had to learn
how to apply for financial aid himself.
He’d visit sites such as Scholarships.com,
only to be redirected to multiple other sites and find himself even more confused.
He was determined to resolve
this issue for himself and others .
After spending one semester at the University of Redlands in Southern California.
Adebogun co-founded ScholarMe
with Evan Farrell and Caleb Cross .
Launched in 2018, the free college financing platform aims to help make paying for higher education easier by streamlining the application process.
Users can also apply for loans
with lower interest rates using
the ScholarMe Comparison Tool.
Since its inception, the company
claims it has helped more than 100,000 students fund their college tuition.
His company is also on pace to hit
one million users in the coming months
