This company is giving employees a way to tackle college debt [VIDEO]

Student Loan Genius Chief Evangelist (yes, that's his real title) Jovan Hackley went on to Larry Mendte's Another Thing to do some signal boosting about the work their start-up has been doing to fix the growing student loan debt crisis.

The two have an engaging back and forth about the work that's been done so far through the companies solution model, as well as what their hopes are for the future. Student Loan Genius was founded by Tony Aguilar, Josh Pierce, and Emiliano Villareal, who were inspired by their own problems with debt from student loans to develop a solution to the problem through the financial relationship between companies and their employees. The main premise is that this company helps employers set up a viable system that helps their employees pay off their student loan debts. Companies receive the benefit of retention in a workforce where a general complaint is oft that the millennial generation has little loyalty, and employees receive the benefit of a program that allows them to gain a handle on the way they pay student loan debt in the most crucial work years of their lives.
