Episode 71: The Future of Financial Aid — And How to Disrupt The College Board's Monopoly on Purchased Names

Posted By Dror Liebenthal on Jan 14, 2021 12:26:54 PM

Meet Dror Liebenthal — the Co-founder and CEO of Bold.org, an organization committed to eliminating the student debt crisis in the United States, and building a more sustainable recruitment and enrollment experience between students and higher education institutions.

The average student today will graduate more than $30,000 in debt and is far less likely to start small businesses, seek the highest impact careers, buy homes, or start families.

Students around the country are taking on huge amounts of debt to get access to the education they want and need. By enabling students to fund their education through exclusive funding opportunities, Bold.org broadens access to that education in an affordable and sustainable way.
