What you will pay for a student you recruit from the Startup-Student-Link is directly connected to the value you will receive from the student.

To determine the value you receive we have developed our SSLink Student Levels system. Our student levels range from level one to level 5 (lvl. 1 – lvl. 5).

Please note that the prices are still introductory and likely to change in future.
