Latitude Episode 62: It was all about that parking pass for Campus Labs founder Eric Reich


Imagine if Eric Reich didn’t want a parking pass that allowed him access to prime parking spots when he was a student at the University at Buffalo. Campus Labs may have never been a thing. It was his appointment at a university council that allowed Eric that parking pass, but it also offered him insight as to how universities across the country weren’t able to make sense of all the data they had on students, applicants, services and so on.

From that appointment on a council, Eric started Campus Labs, a data analytics company that is used by over 1,500 universities.

This week on the podcast Eric talks with host Nate Benson about growing and scaling Campus Labs, creating a high tech headquarters in the City of Buffalo, creating a company culture, and why he joined the 43North board of directors, ultimately becoming chairman and what his vision for the organization will be.
