Vision / Product
- Nice project, anything making education global, and more efficient is a worthwhile initiative

Facets to explore:
- $26M Raise seems like a lot of money all up front for this specific project. Would have liked to see smaller phased milestone based raises

Team:
- Surrounded themselves with a large pool of advisors to lean on.

Facets to explore:
- Team seems tech heavy, but light on business experience.

- Would have liked to see a Finance person / CFO on the team for this amount of money

Not really seeing the benefit of using blockchain (especially ethereum) for this project. Even after reading the PDF from the CTO, I am not convinced there is a real need to put all this data onchain.

The professional world in general also gravitates towards putting more emphasis on experience than education, and I dont see this trend stopping any time soon.

Nothing is easy in education domain, so I always admire those who dedicate their passions for the domain no matter it is a biz or not. I believe that helping people for better career path development is good for human society! Good luck to your vision~

Great team, good vision, but that they will be competing with edX, udemy, and the likes, so that would be challenging. I see this as a project with a great vision, and I could've given it a higher product score if there's a platform already running.

Pros:
+ Open-source platform
+ Strong team and advisors; great media coverage, prep. before the ICO
+- Good selection of relevant and comprehensive documents (see second point in cons)

Cons:
- No live demo
- No easily accessible one-click whitepaper CTA; the website is complicated - overcrowded with text, too much information (not a massive disadvantage, but the front page/landing page should be clear and concise) - even one-pager is over 700 words!
- Large competition in the education sector

Interesting vision, strong team

Interesting ico

This is not financial advice or a recommendation to invest in this or any other ICO. Investors must perform their own due diligence and not rely on external ratings to make their final investment decisions. ICOs are risky and 100% loss of capital is possible.

Good team, but maybe leaning a bit too much to one side instead of being evenly balanced out on experience. The project will be facing some heavy competition. Additionally, I feel that the hard cap is too high - which makes the project less attractive for investors.

Will have to wait for a live product to see what happens.

Pros:
0. A good cause, has wide support.
1. Very comprehensive WP.
2. Aged project.
3. Growing community

Cons:
1. Fiancials and marketing strategy are not present. Education is a very competitive business, and missing market research and financial projections are raising concerns about the future of this whole project.
2. Token liquidity and valuation are not supported properly. There are some listing initiatives, but it is only conceptual in the WP. The token value strategy may be not built around the ICO investor' interests.

Nothing built yet, promises of an alpha version in time for ICO in June. Who is actually on the core team? You have mixed advisors and team so it's not clear. Business Development and Marketing make up five short paragraphs in whitepaper.
