Mainstay started
with a spark...

In 2014, Drew Magliozzi and Kirk Daulerio came together with a shared vision of making college access more equitable through technology. This passion led them to start AdmitHub, a student engagement platform that uses behaviorally intelligent chatbots to connect students with the guidance and support they need to reach college.

AdmitHub didn’t stop with college access, though. The platform soon evolved to support millions of students with empathetic, conversational guidance throughout their entire higher educational journey.

Today, as Mainstay, we empower people to take the next step toward achieving their goals — 
one conversation at a time.

For many people, entering the workforce and navigating a career comes with a new set of challenges to overcome. Mainstay is here for that journey, too, as we partner with schools and businesses to give students and employees the support they need to succeed every step of the way.

Our mission

At Mainstay, we believe one conversation can spark a brighter figure. Our engagement platform makes it easy for colleges and businesses to start and measure meaningful conversations that drive action at scale. From our rigorous research methods to our Behavioral Intelligence approach — everything we do is designed with our mission in mind: To help people take the next step toward a more fulfilling life. 

We seek purpose, meaning, and clarity in everything we do. Our shared curiosity unifies us in our everyday exploration of “the why behind the why.”
