    Tags: Critique, EduFire,   

    EduFire’s elevator pitch grabs the perspective client’s attention right away by creating two scenarios one for perspective students and one for perspective employees. At first glance, the concept of EduFire seemed relatively clear and concise as the company provides one-on-one training through live video learning. However, when I looked at the pitch for a second […]

      Hello! I totally agree. Edufire left me with far too many questions and as a result, I couldn’t buy in to the product.

      Hey Ashley, I really like the way you have set up your pitch critique: using bullet points is always a good way to show important information.
      After watching this pitch, I too was left with too many questions which threw me off of the product.

      Hello Ashley,
      Like you I was left wanting more information, particulrly on cost, and on the team of persons involved. You made an important point in that there needs to be a focus on on what makes a product different.

      Ashley, you raise some great points. First and foremost, it was completely unclear to me why someone would actually want the product that they are selling. Having said that, perhaps this kind of thing is more pointed towards clients in the US or international clients, like from Asia perhaps. I think this is more of a product pitch as opposed to a VC pitch. Following on this, I like how you point out that we have no idea as to who is behind EduFire.

      It’s an interesting concept – providing 1:1 learning, particularly in language studies or learning a new language. The speaker appeared very believable and was passionate in what he believed in. The concept is captivating – providing just-in-time learning to the learner, while taking a small cut from the person providing the learning. As you pointed out, there are unanswered questions one in which they would likely love to tell you about if given an opportunity!

      Hi, Ashley.
      I agree that Malamed’s site is clear as well as easy to read & navigate. The article in question I thought was a little too basic (I guess that’s OK, as it’s really just a list of things to watch), leaving me wanting some more information (including sources). Other things on the site seemed more worthwhile to me personally at the moment.
