College Forward’s CEO Austin Buchan will share the stage with Salesforce at this year’s Dreamforce Conference

College Forward continues to draw recognition for our contribution to the nonprofit education and technology space. As Salesforce’s flagship conference, Dreamforce takes place November 6-9 in San Francisco, and draws crowds of up to 170,000 attendees from around the world and across industries.

This year’s keynote presentation will highlight and share exciting announcements centered on Salesforce’s groundbreaking artificial intelligence product, Einstein. College Forward’s own industry-leading student information system, CoPilot—built on the Salesforce platform and customized to track vital student data to inform our student coaching interventions—stands to be highlighted as a powerful use case, demonstrating how Einstein’s predictive analytics can empower the college success industry to create sophisticated, proactive coaching services to first-generation collegians throughout the U.S. With over 40 partners currently using CoPilot for their student tracking needs, Austin notes, “This latest predictive analytics solution will not only benefit the 8,000 students currently served by College Forward, but will also provide sophisticated solutions for the 240,000 students currently being served by our CoPilot partners across the country.” Einstein’s ability to create early alert systems for us and our CoPilot partners is yet another step toward ensuring no student falls through the cracks on their path to a college degree.

This latest predictive analytics technology stands to accelerate College Forward’s work to build and share effective solutions for practitioners across the nation and to shed light on the importance of leveling the academic playing field for millions of first-generation, low income students.

The keynote address is slated for Tuesday, November 7th from 11:30-12:30 p.m. PST.
