Founded in 2010 by two former college roommates, eCampus Ventures is the name behind two popular apps for millennials at college, including RoomSurf (roommate matching) TextSurf (textbook sales). As a result, founders Justin Gaither and Dan Thibodeau already have a strong user base of students at more than 250 colleges across the country, including a growing network of on-campus ambassadors. JoinU will tap into this established community, and integrate all of the eCampus Ventures apps into a single interface to provide students with one-app access to everything they need for on-campus life.

JoinU allows college students to easily connect with each other based on major, interests, residence hall and more – offering all of the fun and useful elements of major social networks such as Tinder, Twitter and more within your own college community.  The app will be free to users, with eCampus Ventures developing a series of revenue streams that include organic brand engagement, tie-ins with on-campus events, sponsored content, and more.
