Jeremy Johnson Co-founder, 2U

Jeremy Johnson is the co-founder of 2U, an education-technology company that partners with preeminent institutions of higher education such as Georgetown, UNC Chapel Hill and USC to deliver transformative online degree programs.  Prior to working at 2U, Jeremy dropped out of Princeton University after receiving funding for a company which built an online social network around the college admissions process. The company was acquired by Zinch.com.  In his year with Zinch, Jeremy helped the company grow five fold to 500,000 registered users and over 500 college participants, including 50 of the top 100 colleges (according to U.S. News & World Report).  As a digital media evangelist and technology entrepreneur, Jeremy advises a number of start-ups and speaks regularly about the changing landscape of online marketing and trends in higher education.
