About Us
Our Team

Driving innovation in American education – a place that’s resisted change for decades – takes a diverse set of people who take the work seriously without taking themselves too seriously. We’ve built charter schools. We’ve run EdTech companies. We’ve built houses and organized communities. We do as much as we can with as small of a team as possible.
