Nt Etuk

Founder and CEO, DimensionU

Nt founded DimensionU (formerly Tabula Digita) on the premise that the education system needed to become truly “customer-oriented,” where the real customer in education is the student.  It was his belief that prior to DimensionU most emphasis was placed on creating tools to help teachers teach or creating tools to help schools, districts or governments figure out whether teachers were teaching, but very little was being done to ensure that the tools we were putting in front of students were communicating with them in the way they needed to see or hear (social networks, video games, SMS text, etc.) to truly engage this new, digitally active generation. Prior to founding DimensionU, Nt worked for a number of years managing the creation, implementation and analysis of various disruptive consumer products for Bank One and Citigroup. He has also worked with the management consulting firm, McKinsey & Company. In 2010 Nt was selected by Technology & Learning as one of the 30 Future Leaders of Education Technology.  He was also honored as one of six “Top Entrepreneurs” by Crain’s New York.  In addition, Nt is a member of the 2010 Henry Crown Fellows class at the Aspen Institute and a member of The Aspen Institute’s Nigeria Leadership Initiative program.  He has been identified as one of Black Enterprise Magazine’s Masters of Technology, was a finalist for that magazine’s Business Innovator of the Year Award in 2007 and has been featured in numerous publications including Forbes, BusinessWeek, and The New York Times. Nt earned a BS in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University, and an MBA at Columbia Business School where he was a Beta Gamma Sigma graduate, a recipient of the Board of Overseers Fellowship, winner of the Heffernan Award for Outstanding Service, and recipient of the Lang Fund Award for outstanding business ideas.
