The Packback Blog
You might know us as that “cheap eTextbook startup”. Or maybe “those guys that went on Shark Tank”.
We started our business as college students about three years ago. As students, the cost of textbooks felt like the BIGGEST issue in education. And don’t get us wrong, textbook prices are a HUGE problem, but through the years of building this startup, we’ve gotten a glimpse at the bigger picture.
The story of how Packback — and our equally scrappy, entrepreneurial landlord — turned a vacant space in Chicago’s South Loop into a true home for our team on the tightest budget you can imagine.
Our cofounder, Jessica Tenuta spoke at TEDxNormal 2015 about the critical importance of cultivating curiosity in education. We believe that every great innovation is born out of a great question…but students are being taught to answer questions in school, not ask them.
Packback Questions is a question-based discussion platform where you can ask the BIG questions about what you’re learning and what you still want to know. Packback exists to awaken the fearless curiosity in every student because we believe that great innovation is born out of great questions.
