FounderFiles – Nehal Kazim by Jordy Beale and Reide Pastor-Baranek
Co-founders, Nehal Kazim and Michael Dennis have set out on a journey to create an adaptive learning platform for high school students in North America called Professor Pass. After Nehal struggled through a finance course and couldn’t find an affordable and knowledgeable tutor, he decided to do something about it. The company originally started as an online video tutoring platform for university students but eventually evolved to a platform for high school students. Professor Pass consists of three components—pre-recorded videos, practice questions and analytics—ensuring a student’s road to success!
Nehal, a fourth year Entrepreneurship major and Finance minor, has funded his venture himself up until this point and hopes to turnover a profit within the next six months. Despite his full course load, his involvement as Vice President of Business Development with SIFE, and his internship at Skylight Global Investments, he finds his life has turned into a total juggling act.
