Two friends who met at university had difficulties with renting a flat, buying and selling goods on campus sought to resolve these issues and make students life easier by building application named Brocolle.
The modern life of students is difficult. In order to rent an apartment, get a job, buy or sell different items or find events a student must utilize different platforms and applications in order to acquire each thing separately. The challenge of the client was to combine needs of students into one easy-to-use iOS application and address a student’s personal security at the same time.

For the purpose of security and in order to restrict access for non-college users, only owners of emails with university (.edu) domains may sign up. Brocolle uses the location services facility on a user's mobile device to:
Students may only see and publish the ads within their campus. Such an approach provides a highly secure social network for students by limiting access to the community utilizing (.edu) domain verification.
