Calling All College Students: Clinkle Wants You

Mobile-payment startup Clinkle has opened up its waiting list to U.S. college students. But not just any college students. The campus that accumulates the largest percentage of students to the waitlist will be the ones that get to try out Clinkle first.


In case you haven't heard of San Francisco-based Clinkle, the company has been hyped up in the media after it scored $25 million in a seed round from Silicon Valley heavyweights like Andreessen Horowitz, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, Peter Thiel, Intuit, among others. Not only did the round bring in a star-studded group of investors, but it is the largest seed round in Silicon Valley history. And the funding was secured without an actual prototype.


Run by 22-year-old Stanford graduate Lucas Duplan, Clinkle has been in stealth mode since 2011. The company remains elusive as to what makes the product offering so attractive, except hints that the app will be integrating a digital currency similar to Bitcoin called Clinkle cash.


If you are a college student and want to be the first to try out the app, just head over to Clinkle, provide your university-issued email address and start spreading the word to fellow students.
