Steps into the History Books - Ceases Operations
t's all over folks! StudentsHelp.org officially closed its doors on April 27th, 2002 after giving away free computing consulting services for almost 4 years. The charity-based organization was founded in the summer of 1998, by two high school students in the San Francisco Bay Area. Co-Founders, Neilesh Patel and Daniel Brown, decided to close the organization due to the declining economy and weakened corporate and consumer IT spending.
Both Co-Founders felt that the demand for IT services had declined since the dot-com boom, because computing technology and maintenance has become such universal knowledge.
Neilesh Patel now attends Johns Hopkins University and is pursuing interests in the biotech industry.
Dan Brown has decided to move onto new computer-related ventures at U.C. Berkeley, where he is an undergraduate, and is also heavily involved with NASA Research.
