He may only be a senior in college, but that hasn’t stopped Christopher Gray from creating what is set to become a revolutionary app in the educational field.
Scholly, created after Gray had an epiphany that he knew a thing or two after he was awarded $1.3 million in scholarship money, is an app that helps college students find scholarships. Available for 99 cents and already boasting over 90,000 downloads, the app works by simply using personal information that you enter, such as location, age, race, and tailors all available scholarships to ones for which you qualify.
It also reminds you of upcoming scholarship deadlines AND provides you with essays from past scholarship winners to give you some writing inspiration.
During his appearance on Shark Tank, the sharks were so interested in his app that four of them began arguing with each other, resulting in Daymond John and Lorie Greiner going in together on a $40,000 investment for 15% of his company. That makes this company worth over $250,000.
Not bad for someone who hasn’t even graduated from college yet. Scholly plans on expanding to dominate its field as a leader in college prep.
