Two remarkable young entrepreneurs talk with Ken Chenault, one of the nation’s most successful business executives, about the opportunities for tech platforms to deliver critical skills-based education as well as avenues for mentoring, coaching, and creating the kinds of networking connections that lead to upward mobility and job success.
