Summary

Adam Braun is an author and entrepreneur who you may know from his work with Pencils of Promise, an organization that creates schools and other projects that bring education to underserved populations living in rural poverty. He’s also the author of the book “The Promise Of A Pencil” and more recently the founder of a super exciting education startup called MissionU whose model is 1 year of intense, skill-based education with NO upfront tuition - instead, you give them a percentage of your income once you land that sweet job.
