Only 12% of military veterans who go to college end up graduating leaving 1.1 million students at risk each year and $16 billion revenue opportunity lost from annual tuition.
For colleges and organizations struggling with retention, Uvize provides software that drives high impact mentorship programs.
Uvize started with the mission of Academic Success for Military Veterans. This is still a national problem that we address with a powerful combination of mentorship and preparatory education, and we continue to launch programs for veterans in higher education.
CEO Dave Cass (former Navy pilot and college professor) developed content/curriculum with 92% graduation rate which was validated via a 2,000 student pilot program.
Uvize turned this content/curriculum into scalable P2P collaborative technology with a $10,000 subscription fee per school and a $250 tuition per student.
