Description

The Event

Join us at an insights seminar. Meet Mark Fletcher from Cohort Solutions and hear about his experience making international students lives easier.

Whether you are a startup, industry expert, investor, representative of a major education organisation, government representative or education enthusiast - this is a unique networking opportunity.

Mark Fletcher

Mark is a qualified Solicitor, has completed a Bachelor of Business and has also obtained a Graduate Diploma in Applied Finance and Investment. Prior to Cohort Solutions, Mark was responsible for managing all financial risks including foreign exchange, interest rate, liquidity and capital management at a large Australian bank. He has over 15 years’ experience working for international investment banks, together with Australian regional banks.

Mark has been the CEO at Cohort Solutions for 5 years, this company brings together FinTech and EduTech to deliver the most cost effective means of paying for international education. The Australian Government has recognised Cohort for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in both 2014 and 2015. In 2015 they gained 36th place in the Top 100 Fast Starters List published by BRW as one of the youngest and fastest growing companies in Australia.

Cohort Solutions

Cohort Solutions' vision is to reduce the cost of international education. They achieve this by decreasing the cost of tuition for international students; and providing value-enhancing products for service providers in the international education industry which enable them to streamline manual processes in a cost effective and efficient manner.

From a student perspective, they are individually treated as retail customers of the traditional banks and currency transfer houses and are consequently charged excessively expensive foreign exchange rates and fees. However, collectively the international student cohort represents a market that should receive the benefits of pricing power when dealing with the banks. All it took was a platform to bring them together. That "platform" is Cohortpay.
