K16’s TEAM

Dr. Thomas Waite founded K16 Solutions Inc. with long-time colleagues Mary Nisbet and Jordan Scheid. Frustrated by years of wrangling fragmented, dysfunctional EdTech systems, they assembled a team of academic entrepreneurs to create simple, cost-effective, dependable education software.

The K16 Solutions founders and team have worked together for over 16 years across seven different institutions, with over 600,000 students, 160 campuses, 20,000+ faculty, and both regional and national accreditation. They understand first-hand the changing needs of higher education institutions and have a real desire to provide support with simple but innovative academic technology.
