Rushton Hurley, my friend from Next Vista for Learning, is launching a new webinar series called Fascinating Folks: Educators Engaging Entreprenuers. In Rushton’s words, “the idea is to find interesting people who create tools for the education world and talk to them in a much smarter and more productive setting than you might find when someone tries to sell you something, which is not the main objective. of this series. ”
The first episode is this Friday at 4:30 p.m. ET / 1:30 p.m. PT. You can register to attend right here. The first guest of the series is Brett Kopf whose name some of you may recognize as one of the co-founders of Remind. He has a new business called Omella which aims to facilitate the collection of payments by organizations such as schools and nonprofits.
I spoke with Rushton earlier this week and he shared with me the names of some of the other guests who will appear on the Fascinating Folks series. I think you will be fascinated by their news.
