This Wharton alum’s startup helps college students negotiate their financial aid packages

In launching her startup Frank, 2013 Wharton graduate Charlie Javice set out to help people exactly like Lac.

Frank has already attracted significant interest from investors, and recently raised $10 million in funding. Frank’s new lead investor is 1984 Wharton graduate Marc Rowan.

    This Wharton alum's startup helps college students negotiate their financial aid packages
    When College junior Kenneth Lac was applying to college, he had to fill out all his financial aid applications himself - his parents, first-generation immigrants, did not speak enough English to be able to complete the forms. When his mother lost her job at the start of last semester, Lac had to renegotiate his financial aid by himself, a process he described as "a struggle" that made tasks like buying textbooks for class and applying for study abroad programs extremely complicated.
