I am an investment banker and investor in the education and technology sectors. I founded The Student Endowment to help economically disadvantaged college students.
I firmly believe that we can do much more to help economically disadvantaged students succeed and complete college. As is the case too often, and online there are substantial amounts of funding directed to the education sector, how it is allocated and measured in many ways baffles me. I believe we need to better allocate this money to improve the opportunities and outcomes for economically disadvantaged students.
