In 2018, Marnie Forestieri enrolled in the Stanford Latino Entrepreneurship Initiative Education-Scaling Program, spearheaded by CEO Mark Madrid.
At Stanford, she was challenged to think outside the box and reimagine new possibilities. Young Innovators Academy, Forestieri’s brainchild, aims to build on her experience by bolstering early-childhood learning through technology-enabled components that will collectivize and unify local childcare and community-based organizations around the brand.
“There’s what many consider a national childcare crisis, and our mission is to impact as many young kids as we possibly can,” Forestieri says. “This industry demands some disruption, and that is what we’re going to do.”
