Our topic in this episode is, “The Future of Education,” and our guest is Factor CEO and Founder, Caleb Hicks. Factor helps teens explore potential career paths and allows them to begin professional experiences while still in high school. Caleb is the former co-founder at Lambda School and pioneered the innovative income share agreement. Recorded from a recent Peterson Ventures event, Caleb and Taylor Jones discuss why the traditional college path isn’t right for everyone and what compelled Caleb to start Factor. They discuss the challenge of leaving a scaling business to start Factor from scratch, and what the future of education looks like. We hope you enjoy this conversation with Caleb Hicks.
