You Be the Shark: Help Beta Test a New Tech Platform


Are you interested in learning what it takes to create and launch a technology app?

Do you want to be one of the first people to test out a new platform?

If so, then join ed-tech innovator Burck Smith on November 28 at noon for “You Be the Shark,” a fireside chat about the ups and downs of starting a technology company. And you’ll be able to participate in a beta test of his newest venture, PaletteEDU, a groundbreaking communications and management platform that revolutionizes the way students and others connect with the adults and organizations that truly care about their success.

Smith, a Baltimore-based entrepreneur with two successful online education ventures under his belt – SMARTHINKING, acquired by the industry giant Pearson, and StraighterLine, snatched up by private equity – is no stranger to success. And he wants to share what he’s learned with you as he blazes a trail into uncharted territories with his third venture, PaletteEDU.

This new tool embraces a future where advising, counseling, mentoring, and coaching programs at schools, colleges, non-profits, and employers have the power to seamlessly manage their initiatives and forge tailor-made support networks that empower students to thrive. In other words, with PaletteEDU you can create a personal success network to unleash the potential of everyone you care about.

This is your chance to be part of something big. PaletteEDU is more than just another startup; it's an educational revolution in the making. With a beta product that's set to shake up the industry, Smith is looking for pioneers like you to provide valuable feedback and help shape the future of education.

Join us on November 28 to be a part of this exhilarating journey towards redefining education!
