Entrepreneur - Stuby

For those of you who don’t know, Tinder is a dating app where people ‘swipe right’ to show their interest in a person. A pair of University of South Florida undergraduates have created a similar app – but for students seeking study groups. University Beat on WUSF Public Media continues its yearlong look at USF entrepreneurs with a look at Stuby, pronounced ‘stubby’, which is being rolled out for testing, just in time for finals.
