Flying Around America, Looking for a For-Profit Education Business Model

A perfect for-profit education model may not exist.

As many operators and investors and financiers there are, there are just as many business models.

But I am going to make an attempt to find the best ones that I can.

From September 8 to October 8, 2009, I will be flying to several different cities around North America searching out and interviewing the young, the old, the good, the bad and the ugly in for-profit education.

I'm taking nominees now. I've already sent out several invitations and gotten a few acceptances. I will be meeting with a few people in the following cities during this month long Road Trip for Education.

Here are the cities so far:

Austin, Texas
Chicago, Illinois
New York, New York
Vancouver, British Columbia
Seattle, Washington
Phoenix, Arizona
San Francisco and Los Angeles, California
Washington, DC
Orlando, Florida
Fort Lauderdale, Florida

If you live in or near these cities, and you fancy yourself a leader in for-profit education, or if you know someone who is a leader, leave me a comment on this blog, or email me at dcrets [at] iirusa dot com. Let's talk.

The schedule is being worked up now. Put yourself into this conversation and you will see our video interview together on this blog and on other social media sites.

You will also have an opportunity to be a guest speaker at one of our breakfast meetings in New York City and the March 1-3, 2010 forum in Phoenix, Arizona.
