BABL 061: How CreateU will Upend Education with Jules Schroeder

Open any education industry magazine right now and you’ll read about the fact that education is in need of an overhaul. Leave it to an inspired 20-something to figure out how to redefine what it means to pursue higher education. Jules Schroeder would just like you to CreateU.

Jules Schroeder is working in collaboration with the People and Planet Project with the United Nations to redefine education and how it’s delivered through More on that in a bit.

What you should know first about Jules is she is a serial entrepreneur, having launched her first 6 figure business in her teens and her first 7 figure business in her early 20’s. She’s a trailblazer and a pioneer when it comes to following businesses and paths that light her up.

CreateU is a platform for re-imagining our educational delivery platform. The goal of the platform is to reverse engineer the process of educating young people as they look to what they want to do for a living. Today’s system has many graduates leaving in tens of thousands of dollars in debt and no idea what they want to do. This broken system is what CreateU will tackle.

At the end of the one year CreateU program, students will actually be out in the world “doing” the next step in whatever they choose to pursue. The experience factor, now being what companies are looking for, is an intense focus of CreateU. The online course aspect of the program is just part of a $170B industry that’s popped up in the past 10 years.

While CreateU is in the application development phase right now, the classes will begin in early 2016 and Jules says applications are being taken on the site right now. To get advance notice, click here:
