Ted Gonder Promotes Financial Education for the Youth

Ted Gonder has his hands – and his curriculum vitae – full but he still has time for his passion. His intelligent mind coupled with his personal charisma and physical energy has contributed to his early success as the youngest member of the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability for Young Americans. He works alongside titans of the public and private sectors at just 24 years old.

He is also known as the co-founder and chief executive officer of Moneythink, a non-profit student movement dedicated to expanding the economic opportunities available for urban youth. The organization achieves its goal via financial education and peer mentorship programs provided by trained college students who are places in urban high school classrooms for this purpose.

Gonder also has other notable achievements to his name. He previously served as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security; as a researcher and author with the Kauffman Foundation on transnational entrepreneurship initiatives; and as a social entrepreneur via several climate change-related student initiatives, among others.
