In this week’s CSUF Entrepreneurship Insider Director John Bradley Jackson highlights an up-and-coming startup founded by two Cal State Fullerton graduates that will help students pass their courses in the fall and beyond.
Brent Maxinoski ’17 and Cayman Elkin ’17, both recent Entrepreneurship graduates at Cal State Fullerton, are working on a startup that will help students pass the most difficult classes. As CSUF students, they saw how certain courses, what they refer to as “bottleneck” courses, could derail good students from graduating. As a professor, I know about these courses as well; some of these courses have failure rates of nearly 40% and that is a problem.
What Brent and Cayman have set out to do with Wecademi is bring together students who are encountering some difficulties with these courses with people who have already taken these courses and excelled. Wecademi will be, as they describe it, the Airbnb of tutoring.
Entrepreneur in Residence Travis Lindsay was able to sit down with them for a few minutes recently at the CSUF Startup Incubator to talk with them about their business and what they have planned for the future and you can see the interview by going to Cal State Fullerton Startup – Wecademi.
Changing course a bit, this Wednesday at 6pm at the CSUF Irvine campus we will host Dalip Jaggi from Devise Interactive and he will be giving a talk titled: What You Need to know to Build a Profitable App. I’m looking forward to this talk as it’s very relevant to many of the entrepreneurs that we work with and we hope to see you there!
