The work doesn't stop at GradeSlam! If you weren't able to read yesterday's post, GradeSlam is officially one week into FounderFuel, an intensive Accelerator Program run by Real Ventures, and our CEO is currently in New Orleans!

Thoughts on Day 4 from the Founder & CEO of GradeSlam, Phil Cutler:

I beasted the EdSurge Summit in New Orleans where I met with about 75 teachers in a speed dating format.

The Summit’s events ran for the whole day starting at 8AM and finishing at around 3:30PM.

The feedback was great. By the end, teachers were coming up to our table and saying they heard we were the company they had to speak to. We received a lot of validation from the teacher vertical this time.

After the Summit, I went for a run and returned the TV I had rented for the weekend. A quick stop at Harrah’s New Orleans was in order as well.  

Part of our goal in FounderFuel is to find the best messages to reach the different verticals. This event was an exceptional way to test out the waters and get a ton of teacher feedback quickly.
