Entrepreneur Spotlight: NoteBowl

Eller PDC Alumni Stories

NoteBowl Team at Educause

The NoteBowl Team pitching their platform to Educause attendees in Startup Alley

It has been said that 80% of entrepreneurs fail within the first 18 months. But recent Eller alum Andrew Chaifetz, the CEO and founder of NoteBowl, has managed to stay on the side of the 20%.

I interviewed Andrew back in February of this year about his social learning platform. Since then the startup has gained a lot of traction at the University of Arizona, having piloted their platform with three professors and 69 students this summer. The results were incredible, and now the startup is deep in conversation with the U of A to implement NoteBowl on a larger scale.

Recently, NoteBowl caught the attention of The Arizona Republic who published an article about them this past Monday. Members of the NoteBowl team have been in Orlando, FL this week to attend Educause, an education technology conference. And to top it all off, they have just been featured on the front page of Edtech Magazine!

We can expect more good news in the near future for NoteBowl, and you may even end up in a class that uses the platform. Until then, aspiring entrepreneurs can check out the advice that Andrew has to offer. Stay tuned!
