A Key to Great Edtech Products

Aug 28, 2012

Jennifer Carolan, who is heading up NSVF's Seed Fund, weighs in here with the compelling observation that products should be judged on their quality, not their origins. Former Facebook developer turned edtech innovator Luke Shepard seconds her point, adding: "Making money is a great way to keep a product honest, and to attract people who want to build great products."
