Meet Education Project

The Meet Education Project is now on EDUKWEST

As you might know, EDUKWEST was built upon the idea to share the conversations I had with edtech startup founders, investors and thought leaders. Over the years the team and I have added new shows, news coverage and opened up EDUKWEST to contributors from across the edtech landscape.

This year again we are going to focus more on our roots. I can already tease that we will get back into recorded interviews very soon here on EDUKWEST. We won’t do video interviews though but focus on podcasts instead, the format of consumption that our audience has favored over the past years.

We will start to record our new formats very soon, so stay tuned. But there is more. In the meantime we are thrilled to welcome Nick DiNardo and his Meet Education Project to our site. Enter Nick:

I’ve been an admirer of Kirsten and EDUKWEST for many years. In fact, Kirsten’s video interview series was an inspiration for my early work with this podcast!

Why did I start this podcast? It’s simple. Over the past 10 years, I’ve had had the chance to sit down with professors, c-suite administrators at higher ed and K-12 schools, ed tech entrepreneurs, and VCs…just based on a curiosity about different perspectives on the future of learning, inside and outside of our traditional education system.

Back in early 2013, I asked myself the question: would an audience benefit from these conversations? Should I record them? So I did. Almost two years later, I’ve been honored to have 75+ interviews with thought leaders and action takers across the industry. It’s been a blast, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

I hope to provide some value to you all with some of these conversations. Please let me know what you think on twitter (@nickdinardo33) or through email ( I’m easy to find.

I have to thank Nick for his kind words. We also recently sat down for a MEP episode, which you can check out right now on Of course, we are going to post it here on EDUKWEST, as well.

To give you an idea about this partnership, we will be publishing Nick’s interviews with edtech startup founders and investors, starting with his archives and working our way through to the latest episodes. We plan to publish a MEP episode each Monday.
