REVIEW: I’ve heard many teachers complain of the time spent on grading – 17 hours is a lot! – so I can appreciate this more now that there are some numbers behind it. There is a clearly presented pain point here. There is a good analysis of the market to show where there are gaps that need to be filled and how Gradenetix can fill those gaps. The venture seems well positioned and has significant potential although I have to agree it doesn’t seem to be completely original, as was mentioned in the reflection. However, I don’t believe that technology is being used presently to great extent to grade student work so if Gradenetix is a venture that can make this reality it has a lot of growth potential. The pitch does address some gaps so Gradenetix could be the solution that is needed on the market that makes a difference. I felt like I would have liked to have some more information on exactly what was being planned for global expansion i.e. I would have appreciated if there had been some sort of timeline involved. Sometimes ventures can expand to rapidly and overextend themselves so I would have liked to have some more details on what was planned for global expansion and knowing exactly how the investment in the venture would be used and how much would be needed to support the expansion. Overall, it’s an interesting venture. As an EVA I would invest in it.
