We have a beautiful day today in San Francisco, in spite of the Super Bowl logistics doing their best to make our lives difficult. Today we’ll be filming a promo for the launch of our edtech accelerator program which we’re announcing March 7 at SXSWedu. The focus of the program is on higher education and lifelong learning. The goal is to help startups who are making education more affordable and results focused for students who are most at risk of falling through the cracks in our society. It’s nice to be focusing on issues that extend beyond traditional Silicon Valley.
