Kopf is certainly a role model for entrepreneurs, and for everyone, really. His story is that of someone facing adversity, his learning disabilities, and through ingenuity and drive, succeeding in spite of the odds. It is interesting that although his schooling must have been a difficult experience, education is where he focused his entrepreneurial energies. While some might not have recognized the opportunity, the “gap” that he perceived – a lack of communication between teachers and their and students and parents – is an important one. As a teacher, I try to maintain good communication with parents, but it often ends up being less than stellar due to a heavy workload. This app makes it easier, and provides the opportunity for greater student success. Remind has raised $59.5 million in investment since it started out, and counts 17 employees, including a former high ranking engineer from Facebook, but yet it offers its service for free. It has hinted that it will monetize the service with premium plans, but its seems that the company does not yet have a revenue stream.
