Our Story

Born and raised in the 🇺🇸 US, our Founder—Thomas Watson moved to the Philippines in 2010. After spending several years in the country, he faced some challenges in finding a suitable Philippine university and courses for him based on his credentials and interests. After doing some research, he realized that there were thousands of Filipinos who were actively searching for information on colleges every month.

That's the time he built CollegeConnect—and now CourseFinder.ph. We are an ed-tech startup whose mission is to help Filipinos find information and resources for any course they want to study in the Philippines. We partner with colleges, universities, startups, and local businesses.

What We Stand For

CourseFinder believes Filipinos are capable of progress through digital solutions, innovations, and quality education.

We are committed to making this happen by creating and building innovative solutions that impact every user from students, working professionals, colleges, educators, and institutions.
