School of Everything

I’m not a traditional company investor. Since 1987, the only stakes I’ve held have been in the companies I worked for, and they’ve been acquired while I worked for them. That’s been a Rule for me.

Rules, however, are proven by exception. And I’ve made an exception.

School of Everything.

Regular readers will know that I have a passion for education, in many forms and shapes. One of my goals in life has always been to set up a school, from scratch.

Those who have worked with me over the years will also know that I have a similar passion for start-ups, for “fresh blood” innovation. 

And, if you’ve been following this blog over the last year or so, you will have found it hard not to notice that I spend a lot of time looking at social networks and how they work.

So.

It seems appropriate that the first exception I make to the Rule brings these strands together: a start-up, focused on education-with-a-difference, innovative in its style and outlook, discovered as a result of Facebook.

I met the founders many months ago, and they have a passion about them, an excitement about them, an excitement that bodes well for the future. They stand for many things I identify with, and I’m delighted to be able to be a small part of what they are doing. I wish them well, and hope that I can help be of some help to them.

You can read more about it here on TechCrunch, or here on the School of Everything blog.

    In addition to the subject learning, on a global scale there is the cultural learning too that will seamlessly be transferred. I found this valuable when I did my MBA.

    Great idea. All the best!

    JP,

    Hope you have recovered completely now.This looks a great idea of connecting the student and teacher and enabling them to help each other. I could not figure out how it checks the credibility of someone who registers as a teacher .
