Featured EduPreneur: Jason Lange, Bloomboard

In partnership with the EdReach network, Tom Vander Ark and Getting Smart announce the start of a brand new podcast series, The Edupreneurs. Each week (or almost every week) Tom will talk to a different EdTech startup edupreneurs and dig into the stories that make some of the best education platforms and tools available. He’ll talk to the folks that started it all…. the founders!
In the second episode of  this series, Tom talks with Jason Lange, the CEO and Co-Founder of BloomBoard, a teacher development system that supports individual development plans.
Prior to founding BloomBoard, Jason spent several years working in financial services, first in M&A for UBS Investment Bank, and then for a healthcare and financial services-focused private equity firm, Flexpoint Ford Partners.  Throughout his time in the private sector, Jason worked as an independent consultant for several charter school networks, and while in graduate school, he worked for NewSchools Venture Fund, evaluating how different technology tools might be used to improve student outcomes.  Jason holds a BA in Psychology from Yale University, as well as an MA in Education and an MBA from Stanford University.
Jason talks about his background and how Bloomboard came about as well as what lies ahead.

Listen to the live Google hangout or catch up later at EdReach.us, where each episode will be posted and available for download or subscription through iTunes or Stitcher Radio.
BloomBoard is a Learn Capital portfolio company where Tom is a partner.
