NEVCA's popular "Beers with" series is back! This month, we feature an edtech pioneer who will give you a window into how he scaled three game changing companies: The Princeton Review, 2U, and Noodle. At Noodle, John is building a recommendation engine to help anyone find educational opportunities at all levels, from K-12 to college, grad school, weekend classes, and professional development.2tor is an edtech company that partners like with prestigious universities such as Vanderbilt and the University of North Carolina to offer online degree programs. In 1981, Katzman founded The Princeton Review and served as its CEO until 2007. He also serves on the Board of several for and non-profit organizations, and is the co-author of five books and many articles.
NEVCA's "Beers with" series offers VCs and entrepreneurs a chance to hang out and have a no holds barred conversation with an array of visiting founders and investors.
