The Prodigy Finance Story

Prodigy Finance was started by three INSEAD MBA graduates who experienced the difficulties of financing an international degree first-hand. In 2007, we decided to solve this problem.

Our innovative platform offers loans to international postgraduate students attending top universities. Through our community platform, alumni, impact investors, and other private qualified entities invest in tomorrow's leaders whilst earning a financial and social return.

To date, more than $500 million in Prodigy Finance loans have been disbursed to over 10,300 students around the world.  Over 80% of our borrowers tell us they had no other way of financing their studies, so we like to think that we're helping educate the world.

We believe funding shouldn't be a barrier to education.
