inDegree was founded in the Spring of 2008 with one goal in mind – to enhance opportunities through better connections. Universities currently spend a great deal of time and effort attracting and recruiting the best possible students, in part by promising them better career opportunities and access to a powerful alumni network. However, universities actually have a very difficult time delivering on this promise. inDegree helps solve this problem by bringing alumni tie information from universities to the LinkedIn professional network through a proprietary software application. By doing this, both students and universities gain enhanced opportunities through one of the most powerful connections available – alumni relationships.
