"Would You Like Higher Ed With That? Guild Education's Playbook to Educating Employees," Edsurge wrote on May 24, 2017. This article fails to disclose that Edsurge and Guild Education share investors: 1776. (Interestingly, when Edsurge lists Guild Education's investors in the article, it does not mention 1776 at all.)

I have been tracking these failures to disclose financial relationships because Edsurge has been selling its Concierge service to schools in order to help them buy ed-tech products. The lack of transparency is important, I think. Now Edsurge says it's ending the service, but I'm still going to keep track on the publication's disclosure issues.
