Our social platform, www.yconic.com is the only platform that makes life easier and less stressful for students pursuing higher education by providing them with the help that they want.

We have become the “go to” thought leader on millennials because of the key insights we are able to obtain via our platforms, including Uthink, the largest youth focussed consumer insights panel in Canada, with over 550,000 young Canadians aged 13-30 participating in online market research.
