I am not sure if education has the same value as it did. I don’t see tertiary education meeting 21st century expectations and needs. If you look at the books — what was relevant two or three years ago is shortly becoming irrelevant. In other words, we have nearly reached a point where a book is pubished and within 1 year it’s irrelevant because the technology has evolved.

Naturally, this is not a blanket generalisation, but I think we will see more of this as we go forward.

Udemy and other online courses that are relevant and usually have the latest industry data and experience is where we are going.

That Udemy is more empirical knowledge that can be used in a startup even if that startup will fail.
