Our customer reviews
Dr. Joe’s work at Mentor Collective was critical to the company’s organizational success. His consultation on designing randomized-control trials, organizing data, and conducting statistical analysis led to the creation of a new sales and success measurement process that prioritized customer impact (student retention) over vanity metrics. The results of these studies, which demonstrated the efficacy of the company’s student retention interventions, enabled the company to secure $21M in series A funding. Furthermore, Dr. Joe and his work were cited by name in the subsequent TechCrunch article announcing the successful fundraising round. Dr. Joe’s analytical work directly influenced the success of the Sales org; case studies based on his analyses were the key to closing a $150K deal with a long-sought-after university partner.
