Students across the world are going to love this news. A new startup called MindSumo is paying students cash for solving problems it lists on their website. Students looking to earn extra cash by contributing their ideas will be glad to know that Mind Sumo is legitimate and has been paying students for their ideas since 2011.
MindSumo charges businesses to post challenges. They either pay for a single challenge, discounted bundle, or annual campaign. The service is always free to students, universities, and mentors. MindSumo helps companies craft their challenges that are posted for college students to solve. This helps the companies get a much better feel for student candidates. We also are compiling a great amount of data with each student profile, which will one day be used as a search database for companies to identify the right candidates.
Finding ways to make legitimate cash as a student between classes and other engagements is not only difficult, it can be next to impossible. MindSumo offers students a way to earn cash in a fun and engaging environment that does not feel like work. Students look over the various challenges on the website, and collaborate or post their suggested solution.
A student’s solution does not have to be selected in order for them to earn cash. Most challenges accept 40 solutions, and award 5 winners and then 5 honors. The winners are awarded the most around $150 each, and then the honors are awarded around $50 each.
MindSumo offers students a viable way to earn cash during their free time. Students looking to take advantage of this can register directly at the site and use the promo code GET30 to get a $30.00 sign up bonus!
