Academic advisors are grappling with impossible student-to-advisor ratios and little to no real-time means to track student progress against their career goal. Yet, what they love most about their day-to-day roles is working directly with students to identify the coursework-to-career pathway most appropriate for their goals.
Early customer interviews are reinforcing these assumptions for the Orca Analytics team. Narrowing the could-be product to the most-validated pains/painkillers was an important milestone for the founders. Our recent LEVEL 3 // Messaging session proved that the first prototype will be tightly aligned with creating gain for both the academic advisors and their students.
We're eager to see how this team progresses through Sumeet's LEVEL 4 // MVP course later this month. If you have referrals to academic or career advisors, specifically within community colleges, please share those with us so we can help Orca continue to improve their odds.
