Startl’s Phoenix Wang Named to Fast Company List of 100 Creative People

[ 0 ] June 4, 2010 |

Congratulations to our own Phoenix Wang, who was named to Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People.

Phoenix Wang, 40, wants to do for education start-ups what Sundance does for indie film: hold forums to sift out great ideas and find investors to back them. “Many educational innovations have died on the vine because there’s no sufficient infrastructure between concept and commercialization,” she says. The ex-Accenture consultant and iVillage strategist has snagged funding from the Hewlett Foundation (she used to work there too) and the Gates Foundation. The first forum, in March, included one not-for-profit building an app for nature lovers and another creating content-management tools for teachers.
