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. Through our collection of education brands, we strive to lower the cost of college by helping students find more affordable student loans, cheaper course materials, and the resources they need to get student debt-free faster. Valore began in 2006 with SimpleTuition, a leading online student loan comparison engine that has helped more than 10 million families pay less for college. In 2012, the company acquired ValoreBooks, the online textbook marketplace that helps students save up to 90% off the cost of new and used textbooks, and get the price when they want to sell them back. In 2014, ValoreBooks launched its first product designed specifically for bookstores, a market it continues to build innovative solutions for as part of its effort to drive down the cost of textbooks. In 2015, Valore acquired Boundless, a learning solution that empowers educators with access to open-source content, quizzes, slides and assessments to create higher quality course materials at lower costs for their students. By serving the entire education ecosystem, from schools and bookstores, to professors and educators, and of course, students, Valore is leading the way toward a more affordable education.
