On lucky number episode 13 of EdUp EdTech, I had the pleasure of speaking with CEO and Co-founder Diego Fanara from Unibuddy. This episode highlights the importance of connecting current students with prospective students and helping them decide which institution is best for them to attend. Peer to Peer connections through Unibuddy helped increase application and retention rates by 65% in situations where a prospective student got the opportunity to chat with an ambassador (current student). Diego also talks about his passion for diversifying college demographics and opening up a world of opportunities to both domestic and international students. This is a fabulous episode is filled with great tips on how to connect students across the higher ed ecosystem.
