Over the course of the next 5 years Brad travelled to India over 30 times meeting with hundreds of companies, the Prime Ministers from both Canada and India, educational leaders, spiritual leaders, students, families and more. His travels to India focused on understanding the underlying root challenges within the educational system, while working to establish betterU’s infrastructure, relationships and partnerships that would ultimately support betterU’s long-term vision. Today, betterU is closing a US$100M equity investment that will advance and support the business acceleration. betterU currently supports over 12,000 programs across KG-12, Skills Development, Exam Preparation, Assessment, Higher-Ed and more.
