Hi! We are Claudia and Carolina Recchi,
sisters and co-founders of EdSights. At 17, we left Italy and moved to the U.S. for college. Having an outsider’s perspective made us particularly aware of the challenges and needs of the American higher education system. A few years later, we built a mobile application for college classrooms that grew to over 200 universities across the U.S.
Now, we are solving the college dropout crisis because we believe that universities are not equipped to support today’s students. As first-generation U.S. college students, we witnessed this problem firsthand. Not knowing who to turn to for help throughout our college experiences, we decided to build a chatbot that helps all students navigate challenges throughout their college years. We built EdSights because we wish we'd had it then.
