  • Company Description
    Social Finance (SoFi) was founded in early 2011 by a team of Stanford GSB alumni who recognized that the current practices of student lending had become impractical in the face of a changing world and growing student demand. Recognizing the power of the social web and our connected world, SoFi aims to restore the historical norms of lending to help students meet their financial needs through alumni involvement.
