Daniel Pianko, managing director of University Ventures, joins Higher Ed Now to discuss how new education innovation is helping to improve quality and career outcomes and reduce time- and cost-to-degree. With its portfolio companies, University Ventures is nurturing innovations in financing college, advising students, and streamlining the path from graduation to the all-important first job. University Ventures’ unique vantage point as an investment firm that works alongside educational institutions and technology companies provides timely insights into the changing landscape of higher education and gives trustees a peek into creative ways to innovate at their own institutions.
