In September '08 Jordan Goldman launched the 100% free college review site Unigo.com. Since then tens of thousands of current students have created college reviews, photos and videos, allowing Unigo to quickly achieve its goal of providing more college content than any other resource. The New York Times reported “Unigo’s college reviews make the U.S. News summaries read like junk mail ... they are vivid in a way no guidebook can match,” and The Wall Street Journal’s Walt Mossberg called Unigo “a college resource built for the age of YouTube and Facebook.” Within six months more than 1.5 million people had viewed more than 10 million pages of college information on Unigo.com, and Unigo rose to become the second result on Google for the term “college reviews” (beating out well-established competitors such as Kaplan and The Princeton Review.) As CEO Jordan was named “one of the 100 most influential New Yorkers in the digital business community” by Silicon Alley Insider two years in a row, and Unigo was nominated for a Webby – the internet’s highest honors – in the category “Best Social Networking Site.” Unigo was also called “one of the top 10 social networks for Generation Y” by Mashable, and “one of the 100 private companies with the biggest impact on the public sector” byAlwaysOn. * Watch the video simulcast on Ustream at http://www.SmartNetworkingTV.com.* Episode #26 on Ustream.
