This is the third and final part of our mini-series with startup advisor Earnest Sweat to share insights into building a startup, building a team for a startup, and building capital for a startup.
Our guest today is Nitzan Pelman. Nitzan is a social entrepreneur at heart and cares deeply about finding solutions to break the cycle of poverty through education. In July, 2015 Nitzan founded ReUp Education, which partners with universities to re-enroll students who have dropped out of college. In the fall of 2016, ReUp will engage over 25,000 students in coming back to college and finishing their degrees.
Today, Nitzan will discuss her journey to securing funding for her startup as well as the many barriers she overcame to get there.
