Founder’s Note

Stukent CEO, Stuart Draper

Hi Everyone!

When you consider the brand Under Armour, what would you say was their original, defining product? A spandex shirt for under football pads, right? What product would you say defines them now? Is it still the same thing? Any specific product? They do everything from golf pants to hunting jackets. When Under Armour was approaching $1 Billion in annual sales for the first time, the founder, Kevin Plank said, “We haven’t built our defining product yet.” At Stukent, we got our name and reputation around first-in-the-world digital marketing courseware. That was what initially defined us. I’m very excited to say that we haven’t built our defining product yet. There’s so much more that we can do as we fulfill our mission to “help educators help students help the world.”

If you’re aware of any gaps in the high school space where you feel we can develop simulations and courseware that will help, please let us know at [email protected]

Thanks for all you do to use the best educational materials for your students.

My best,

Stu

Teacher of the Month

Jesse Zitrin is a native San Franciscan and has lived and worked in the Bay Area most of my life. In 2008 Jesse earned his Master’s in Sport Management at the University of San Francisco and started working at Juma Ventures. Juma is a social enterprise dedicated to helping youth through college and out of poverty, by employing them in wholly-owned stadium concessions operations. As the business manager, he worked on hundreds of events at Giants, A’s, Warriors, 49ers, Raiders, and Cal Bears games, and saw close-up how high schoolers think, learn, work, and feel in the real world. It also showed him the power of business as an authentic teaching tool.
