The platform for student marketplace
Trocy is an online social platform providing the opportunity for students to exchange their goods, services and school information on campus with their peers.Why Trocy?
Trocy allows students to reduce life expenses, earn extra income to support their living expenses such as travel cost, and boost social interactions. Our biggest recognized opportunity is safety of students' demand to the largest degree, including security of customers, growth of student income and development of their entrepreneurial skills. As Student's safety is our primary concern therefore, we restrict our market exclusively to students and set a grading procedure, which will ensure a safer and secured community.
Who are we?
Trocy is a team, comprised of engineers and business students from UB.

The crowdfunding campaign
WHO CAN HELP?

WHY SHOULD YOU HELP?
There is a huge market niche to satisfy students' increasing demands in school life. National surveys estimated 70% of college students are stressed about finances, which explains why more than 2,000 students are enrolled in run-entrepreneurship clubs and organizations on campus. During a year, students spend on average of $10,466.59 on living expenses during a year in college but their annual income working full time at federal minimum wage is $15,080 , not enough to finance their tuition expenses.
