Gary Conroy

Founder & CEO of The Startup Studio

“If we do not change the current system of education we are going to build a generation enslaved by technology instead of one capable of leveraging it. This is a generation that is now burdened to fix a world in need of saving. The only way we can ensure that happens is if we transform education so it builds market-ready human beings.”
