Creating Chaos

I recently met with a colleague who works for a national foundation for a general catch up. We spoke on a variety of items ranging from education to diversity to the over investment in infrastructure in Detroit. One of the main conclusions from our conversation was the need for chaos. Chaos in a positive sense, not a negative one. The thought was there is no industry and geographic destination that is need of chaos and disruption as education and Detroit. My colleague spoke with such honesty and conviction that he struggles every day with how to get the next generation involved in education. How can we make education sexy? How can we get the digital natives on board to create systemic change?

This was one of the most energizing and reinforcing conversations I have had in a long time as uwemp was founded to answer many of these questions above. Make people uncomfortable by thinking big, acting even bigger, and relentlessly pursuing the goal of dramatically improving the education and training industries. This will only happen if true chaos is created among educators, administrators, policy makers, and entrepreneurs. Let’s go!

About Jordan Wolfe

I am the founder of uwemp. Prior to founding uwemp, I worked at Mainsail Partners, a private equity firm in San Francisco. With a passion for making other peoples' passions a reality, I realized it all starts with education. When I first started uwemp, we were helping students developing their writing skills and I was shocked at how poor they were. This led me down to the path of realizing how broken the education and corporate training markets are and put me on a lifelong mission to play a role in creating wide spread disruption. Free time is filled with cheesy romance movies, making it rain on the basketball court, and attempting to play left-handed shortstop on the softball field.
