Alberto: Thank you for having me, Spiffy! The main problem we are addressing at Transcend Network is the lack of support that exists for early-stage founders in building education and work innovations. We provide support by connecting them to a global network of founders, investors, mentors, and research.
Francesco: The inequality that exists, in regards to access to educational resources, is often driven by income, and the COVID-19 epidemic has only made this issue worse. In fact, during the rise of remote learning during the pandemic, 56% of parents reported being unable to help their children with math, with clear disparities between households that can afford to hire a tutor versus those who can't. It's more important now than ever for students to have the tools they need to support learning— both inside and outside of the classroom—regardless of their economic status.
Harry: At Uprise, we're trying to get the most driven and curious young professionals doing things that make them feel alive and impact the world through their careers. Making them more fulfilled through creating entrepreneurial careers that fit their values. Making them more employable for the future of work. And hopefully addressing some of the challenges around us today; whether in a small way or a big way.
