ABOUT THE EPISODE:
Following courses from the best universities & companies in the world online, and even being able to get a degree from them, is now possible - thanks to Coursera. This company is fully dedicated to transforming lives through learning. Having a good learning curve is one of the most important traits for success we see amongst entrepreneurs at The Family. The internet made it possible to access tons of information easily and freely online. However, hacking the system by giving access to world-class quality knowledge (you know, the same one rich people get in top universities) was still a big challenge to address to make education ever more inclusive.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Jeff Maggioncalda's background is phenomenal. Before joining Coursera as CEO two years ago, he co-founded Financial Engines, one of the biggest & hottest fintech companies in Silicon Valley at the time, together with the Nobel Prize in Economics winner Bill Sharpe; he then sold it for… $3B.
