BookRenter.com

BookRenter launched the first online textbook rental site in 2006 and remains the fastest growing service. Dedicated to making education more affordable by allowing students to rent textbooks for up to 80% off the retail price. BookRenter’s innovative pricing and operating systems provide students with the best price, highest quality books, and most flexible rental experience available today. Currently carrying over 5.5 million titles and serving thousands of students on over 5,000 U.S. campuses, BookRenter is one of the fastest growing startups in Silicon Valley, growing at over 300% each year. BookRenter is headquartered in San Mateo, CA and is funded by Storm Ventures, Norwest Venture Partners, and Adams Capital.

The Idea behind BookRenter.com came from the frustration associated with buying textbooks when the founder, Colin Barceloux attended Santa Clara University as an Undergraduate Student. BookRenter.com utilizes state-of-the-art technology and superior customer service to provide students with a better value and a hassle-free process.

BookRenter rebranded to Rafter in July 2012.
