ANNOUNCEMENT OF HERDI IC (Higher Education Research and Development Institute Independent Colleges)
HERDI IC provides an opportunity for companies with products and services designed to support student success, finance products designed to save manpower and budgets, and tools and technology products developed for reporting and research in higher education, to showcase their products. It is also an opportunity for a company to present their planned website, their newly developed sales campaign, or other marketing concepts in front of independent college Presidents from across the nation. The insight and feedback provided by the panelists allow the presenting company to move forward faster by receiving input and advice from those who will be implementing and using the technology.
Our mission is to assist companies in bringing the best products and services to meet the needs of the independent college market, and support student’s and college’s progress toward their educational goals.
Members of HERDI IC will have the opportunity to spend 3 hours presenting and interacting with a panel of 5-7 HERDI IC Board members who are Presidents from across the country. Some have compared the opportunity to a "Shark Tank” experience where you will share your company and products, discuss your goals and gain valuable insights from the decision-makers themselves. You will receive feedback and advice on your products and services as far as what is working, and what is not working, saving you valuable time and money in research and development. The esteemed panel will be your key to unlocking the potential of your product or service in the independent college market. Even though there is no guarantee, many panelists have agreed to run a pilot program in their college for further research and development, an opportunity that few companies get to experience.
