Parker C. Holcomb started another business his freshman year, All College Inc., that does moving and storage at 14 colleges and boarding schools in New England and New York. So that business is helping bankroll eHighLighter. He’s also got some traditional investors and he’s meeting with others because he doesn’t feel he can wait for crowdfunding regulations to be in place and that funding to become available.
Parker C. Holcomb has an idea. It’s called eHighLighter and it is an application, or app in computerspeak, for smartphones. eHighLighter allows students to scan text from books and organize that information, email it and share it with classmates. Students with eHighLighter can even scan the code numbers of the books they use and use that information to create bibliographies and footnotes.
