J.B. Schramm, College Summit Founder and CEO, has been named by Forbes Magazine as one of the top 30 leading social entrepreneurs in the world.
For the first time in Forbes’ 94-year history, Forbes assembled the Impact 30: a list of the leading social entrepreneurs, or a person who uses business to solve social issues. To select the list, Forbes recruited a panel of experts who helped them identify the leading innovators across health, education, finance and other sectors.
The Forbes profile of College Summit’s work notes, “Lots of smart high school kids from low-income neighborhoods never even consider attending college, particularly ones who don’t have top grades but are otherwise well equipped to succeed at the post-secondary level. College Summit partners with 175 high schools around the country to identify these bright, midtier students.”
