In the short term GetAccepted knew it needed to build a working process. Zibtek was the perfect fit for Brooks, as a non technical founder looking to do big things with in the tech space. The long term goal of getting acquired by another company in the education technology industry was achieved through the build of this new product.
GetAccepted knew that it needed a completely scalable solution if it was going to be acquired by another company.
