Next month, I am going to be flying all over the United States and to one city in Canada to meet the new leaders in for-profit educational services and learning in North America. This is my attempt to glorify and promote what has become one of the most successful strategy sessions for investors in for-profit education in K12 and post secondary schools and services.
Do you want to be included in this list? We have spots for five more interviews, and then we will have to close the door on new applicants.
Each of these interviews will be showcased on this blog, and also at other sites around the web, including Fast Company, where I manage a blog on entrepreneurship in Asia and abroad.
