The Story

Chapter 1: FRINT and the Niesh Lounge

In 2015, our founder Jae had $10 in his bank account. A struggling student, he had the choice between buying a Kebab or printing his past papers to pass his exams. He chose to eat and nearly failed his exams...

He decided at that moment, "money should never be a barrier between students and their education." Using his own money, he launched FRINT. A free printing company for students that made money off advertisements that were on the bottom of each page.

After receiving immense support from the student community, Jae and his business partner James rebranded FRINT into Niesh and launched our student lounge. Selling food and operating a free printing service.
