When was Yapik founded?
Yapik was founded by a University of Miami student named Sabina Kaplan. She had the idea of creating an app that enables students to buy and sell goods and services in the safety of their college campus. Net Element developed Yapik and launched the beta version in September 2011 in three South Florida universities: Florida International University, the University of Miami, and the University of South Florida. Yapik was rebuilt with several cool new features and will be re-released this Fall of 2012.
Is Yapik really run by college students?
Yes! Yapik was founded and is still run by college students. This helps us stay focused on what college students want and need to help them throughout their college career.
