-- college for 199 dollars a month.
That's what university now is charging for unlimited online classes we -- joined by its co-founder CEO Jean -- Thank you very much for being let us -- And just so let's start with how many.
Students have signed up for your service thus far and what do you want to what I want to be in a year five years.
Great so we opened in about April of this year we've had about 6000 students on our platform becomes an open platform.
And a little a drip -- under a thousand directly enrolled in the school of and we hope to be is bigger yeah good for you -- like every business -- grow bigger.
And have not throwing a curve ball I mean your resume here says that that you have of an MBA from Wharton and and you have a JD from Harvard University.
And now you're trying to persuade me that G I shouldn't -- for only 200 dollars a month.
My degree with the university -- thought -- be anywhere near as bibles the degrees you have from Wharton Harvard isn't.

Students are paying call -- -- to -- dollars for class -- thirty students in the class do you really think the teacher -- 45000 -- class that's not what's happening.
Most of its being soaked up an infrastructure a lot of -- -- things that don't contribute to student learning.
