To get to the next level, a product team needs to focus on adoption. Education plays a fundamental role in driving adoption of modern products and services. To work with founders every day, helping them integrate education with product strategy is a unique opportunity to make important contributions to our portfolio companies, to master my craft, and to influence best practices for making new ventures successful. I could not be more excited to collaborate with this team of innovators.
