About Us

At Valore, we hold true that universal access to quality, affordable education is a right, not a privilege. We believe that empowering students, bookstores, professors, and schools with choice leads to higher quality education and lower costs. So that's just what we do. Valore was founded in 2006 when the company launched its first product, SimpleTuition, a leading online student loan comparison engine that has helped more than 10 million families pay less for their education. Today, Valore strives to bring efficiency and affordability to the textbook industry through its two unique platforms, ValoreBooks (acquired by SimpleTuition in 2012) and Boundless (acquired in 2015). ValoreBooks is a leading textbook marketplace that supports millions of students, thousands of sellers, and hundreds of bookstores to get the best prices when buying, renting and selling textbooks. Boundless is a digital publisher that empowers academic institutions and their faculty to drive student success through the use of high quality, cost effective, and scalable digital courseware. Together, ValoreBooks and Boundless are an agent of change in how course materials are created, acquired, distributed, and consumed.
