“Jess played an integral role in shaping Fiveable's market expansion strategy. Her expertise in the edtech industry was evident from the start, and she created a comprehensive market landscape that was critical to the success of the project. Jess also built a dynamic scoring tool that ranked each opportunity against our strategic priorities and provided us with a clear roadmap.
The final recommendation slides that Jess created exceeded our expectations. We presented the strategy to our board with confidence, knowing that we had conducted a thorough review of the market and our decisions were grounded in data.
We are grateful for Jess' help and highly recommend her services to any early-stage edtech company seeking a strategic partner.”
