Many of us have used Craigslist to buy and/or sell any number of household items, but a new website by NYU student Ethan Lew called Jigitt brings a similar online marketplace specifically to college campuses. We asked Ethan some questions about his website which has already been rolled out to NYU, Brandeis, Baruch, and UT Austin.
What are you studying at NYU?
I am currently an econ major in CAS, minoring in web design.How did you come up with the idea for Jigitt?
I came up with Jigitt, after walking the halls and cafeteria at my old college, Bates college. I transferred here as a sophomore and brought the idea with me. I saw that there was a big demand for a platform where students could buy and sell their used stuff.
