Pangea.app provides college students with a freelance market for their future.
When one hears “Pangea,” the hundreds-of-millions-years-old supercontinent is usually what comes to mind. But now, there’s a new Pangea in Providence — and instead of connecting land masses, it’s an app connecting students with their community.
Pangea.app was an idea conceived three years ago as a marketplace specifically designed to give students the opportunity to use their skillsets by offering freelance services and fulfilling requests by other students and members of the greater Providence community. After a beta version launched last October, a team of ten students from Brown, RISD, and Johnson & Wales came together to redevelop, rebuild, and rebrand the app, culminating in a relaunch this September with the new and improved Pangea.app.
