The prolific entrepreneur and CEO of Zero Cheating sat down to discuss his life, his career, and his professional philosophy
BOCA RATON, FL / ACCESSWIRE / October 5, 2022 / It is with great enthusiasm that Neil Parsont, prolific entrepreneur and CEO of online exam proctoring company Zero Cheating, announces that he is the subject of a new interview. The interview, which was conducted by freelance journalist Stefan Junge on behalf of a web-based periodical aimed at businesspeople and entrepreneurs, was published on September 21, 2022.
Early in the piece, Neil addresses a question about what inspired him to create Zero Cheating. "I was part of a large group chat of FAU students who decided to kick me out of the chat so they could cheat. Using secondary accounts, I saw students sharing the entire exam, and I decided this dishonesty needed to be stopped. Armed with years of firsthand knowledge of how students circumvent existing proctoring services and cheat, I knew exactly how to prevent it going forward," he explains, before elaborating on his motivation, "Academic fraud devalues degrees, which isn't fair to the students that actually put in the time and effort to learn the material."
Further along in the interview, after being asked how he brings his ideas to life, Neil Parsont responds without hesitation, saying, "Immediate action. Once I have an idea, I find a way to make it concrete and implement it. For example, when I realized the extent of cheating and formulated a solution, I immediately contacted a patent attorney. Once the non-provisional patents were filed, I began the process of writing a business plan with a partner and sourcing a technology provider. As of now, the camera and software are being built, the fundraising is started, and testing is scheduled for Spring Semester 2023."
