Erik’s co-host for this episode is Ali Hamed (@AliBHamed) of CoVenture. They
are interviewing Tonio DeSorrento (@TonioDeSo), CEO and co-founder of Vemo
Education. They talk about the history of income-sharing agreements, including
that Milton Friedman had once proposed the idea and that Yale University had
experimented with them at one point. Tonio talks about starting Vemo and how
he has brought income-sharing agreements to more and more educational
institutions. They discuss the fact that 88% of students entering college are
doing so to improve their early career path but that most institutions would
say that providing a career path is not the primary value they provide. Tonio
explains that Vemo has helped students find the right institution for them by
publishing outcomes from the income-sharing agreements. He says that this
transparency of outcomes has in and of itself changed how colleges look at the
service they provide. They move on to talking about the future of higher
education in general, why there doesn’t yet exist a Kickstarter for education
(and what some of the pitfalls of that model would be) and in which other
industries something similar to income-share (or “value-share”) agreements
might make sense. Tonio also talks about how Vemo plans to scale and where
they go from here. Thanks for listening — if you like what you hear, please
