Traid University

Company: Traid University

Location: Middletown, CT

Company/organization description

Traid is a student-run platform that promotes college student creators and entrepreneurs. We seek to solve the lacking visibility of student entrepreneurship on college campuses by providing a centralized platform and community for students to gain support and expand their networks. Ultimately, we plan to create an interactive online platform on which students can perform transactions including buying, selling, and trading of goods and services.
