Edmentum Meeting Details

Goals

  • Detail any prior/current partnerships that Edmentum has with other curriculum creators, especially in the Career Exploration space.
  • Detail the type of referral model that Edmentum utilizes for their sales representatives and how a company with a free product could peak their interest since they wouldn't earn commission.
  • Identify the types of priorities that Edmentum has whenever they are seeking/considering partners, and explain how a company offering a free curriculum program could successfully meet those priorities.
  • The overall goal of each of the above points is to inform the best way a company that is offering a free curriculum product should position themselves to sell to Edmentum, even though the product is free.
