Beyond Graduation's Alumni eStore Network (AEN) is designed to support schools in their ongoing conversation with their alumni, providing school-spirited items available for sale in customized eStores that will, in turn, financially support their alma mater.
Institutions of learning of all types are invited to open and help market their own Beyond Graduation eStore. A percentage of profits will revert to the school and the dialogue driven by the store provides one more way to stay in contact with alumni.
For the past twenty years, Michael Fischler was the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Journey Education Marketing, Inc. (JourneyEd). With sales of over $120 million, JourneyEd operated and managed over 30,000 online, school-affiliated e-commerce stores. Representing America's largest technology companies - Adobe, Autodesk, Corel, Microsoft, etc. - JourneyEd pioneered the online sales of software and related educational items to K-12 and college students and their institutions. When Mr. Fischler sold the company to Digital River, Inc. (NASDAQ: DRIV) in late August of 2010, JourneyEd was the undeniable leader in the space.
In addition to Mr. Fischler, Beyond Graduation has a management staff with decades of experience selling educational product.
