Brothers on a mission.

In 2016, brothers Mike and Dave Baumwoll sought a better way to connect people’s curiosity to reliable sources of information. They created Minque to give expertise a platform and elevate the conversation. 

In a world of unlimited questions and unfiltered information, Minque strives to connect curious minds to expertise. To that end, Minque is designed to give users the chance to ask and vote on questions and get short video answers from professors.

To do this, Minque is partnering with colleges and universities around the country to connect alumni curiosity with their alma matter’s professor expertise.  

Minque’s mission is to ensure that learning and exploration continues after graduation. With Minque, alumni can put their college in their pocket.
