Uvize

Technology that drives high impact mentorship programs for colleges and organizations

Company Overview

The Problem:

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.

The Solution:

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.

The Opportunity:

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.
