About the Episode

The what's what...

In the final episode of Collective Enrollment, you’ll meet Adam Metcalf — Co-Founder of ZeeMee. Before the financial crisis of 2008, Adam had worked as a financial advisor for Morgan Stanley.  

After 2008, Adam decided it was time to do something different - turns out he just wasn't all that passionate about advising folks on how to increase the performance of their portfolios. So, Adam went and got a master's degree in education and became a teacher.

And it was during this chapter of his life where the idea, which would eventually become ZeeMee, was born. Tune in to hear the remarkable story of how a company that almost lost it all, but pivoted to become the No. 1 college search app and one of the most popular social network apps on the app store.  

You can connect with Adam on LinkedIn or Twitter via the links in the show notes below.
