Interesting /idea/concept - https://www.upstart.com/

You are the investment and can use the money to pay off loans or to go to bschool. You trade a percentage of your future income. Anything from 1% to 7% over the next 5 or 10 years. It seems it is somewhat focused on the elite school graduates at the moment but should expand beyond that small group eventually (hopefully soon). If anything, seems a great way to network and potentially find mentors and employers (e.g. if someone invested in you, they would be motivated to help you find a job )

I was hoping it was open to intl. students. Sadly, its not.

Does anybody know any working programs like upstart for those from middle east/ india?
