Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Chicago Public Schools CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett introduced LEAP Innovations in a big way. At our kick-off luncheon, we heard from the civic, education, and philanthropic leaders from across the city who have helped launch the initiative, including our board chair, Mark Furlong from BMO Harris Bank, and Leo Melamed of CME Group. We also met one special student who reminded us what it’s really all about. Thanks for joining us, Juvon!
Our keynote speaker, co-founder and CEO of GSV Capital Michael Moe, braved some nasty Chicago weather and a car ride from Milwaukee just to be there. (Thank you, Michael!) He shared his vision for the next American Revolution, one in which education innovation transforms learning and revitalizes our economy. Check out his presentation here.
Special thanks to Motorola Mobility for hosting us, and to all of our funders and board members for their support.
