Hey Ryan, I too thought about the power of mentorship coupled with personalized learning. Add those two together, and guarantee graduates a job and that is something that is hard to say no to! The obvious drawback that I see is the very limited course offerings. They really only have 4 educational streams / fields with very specialized learning ‘tracks’. As they continue to grow and produce high quality employees at big global tech companies, I suspect they will broaden their course offerings.
Good point also about many educational tech start ups are not founded by educators!
