13 - How a chatbot is solving the college dropout problem ft. Carolina & Claudia Recchi

February 17, 2020

Claudia and Carolina are sisters and co-founders of EdSights - a company that uses conversational AI to support students at scale and increase college graduation rates. Before starting EdSights, the two sisters founded another EdTech product, which they grew to over 200 colleges across the U.S.  Claudia and Carolina went through the Techstars accelerator program and were recently recognized by Forbes as two of the most influential young entrepreneurs in the field of Education.  University recruitment and retention directors may be the client, but EdSight's customers are college students, especially those at risk of dropping out. It's a chatbot that checks in with students on issues such as engagement, homework, grades and personal financial issues and problems.
