RiseBack is a small step in empowering professionals to earn their future without Student Debt, ultimately making them more confident in achieving higher professional goals, leading to higher disposable income and triggering economic activity.

Launched by Indian American Social Entrepreneur Dr. Tausif Malik, RiseBack offers affordable college degrees starting at $75 per month to students in the USA, Africa & GCC region.

The startup is one of the first and only EdTech platforms offering Undergraduate & Graduate degree programs, and has partnered with leading Indian Universities to offer affordable University Degree to students & professionals in USA, Africa & GCC region.

Many people would argue that current education needs a reboot, and online education has offered a new solution, which is democratic, one can avail it from anywhere anytime.

Organizations (non-profits or for-profits) have been actively leveraging the technology to help individuals and companies through YouTube, EdTech platforms, or Zoom. The majority of them support tutoring kids and preparing for competitive exams, entrance exams, or skill-based training programs.

It has impacted the lives of millions of students, one shining example is Khan Academy. There are various examples of entrepreneurs such as Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg et al, who were college dropouts and established global corporations.

But, later these corporations are managed by University educated professionals. Hence, there will be always a need for qualified individuals and professionals.

Over the years, the cost of university education, especially in the US, has skyrocketed, which has resulted in many shying away from enrolling in degree programs for fear of student loans.

This has led to a shortage of qualified individuals and millions of individuals stuck up in their careers. Some challenged their situations and started their businesses, but many couldn’t take risks due to their circumstances.

Malik said that “He has lived across the GCC region and America. I have observed and met individuals and professionals working in the GCC region (UAE, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain & Saudi Arabia) who are talented, intelligent, and hardworking, but because of lack of a University degree they are not able to get better positions and pay.”

Further, he said that “As an immigrant, I had the educational advantage of holding two Masters’ degrees from India, which I earned without high student debt. In fact, I could pay the tuition on my own, without taking any help from my parents or family or student loans. So, when I compared this with my fellow Americans, I had an advantage in that I didn’t have high student loans.”

As the future belongs to Africa, RiseBack aims to help individuals and organization to achieve personal, professional, and organizational goals by connecting Indian Universities and their affordable degree programs.

RiseBack would be hosting webinar series for students & professionals from Africa, America, & GCC for details and registration visit the site.
