Jordan Goldman Founder and CEO, Unigo

Jordan Goldman is the founder and CEO of Unigo.com, the Web's largest resource of information to find, get in and pay for college. Frustrated by his own experience with the college admissions process, as an 18-year-old college freshman, Jordan began his career by creating the "Students' Guide to Colleges" series of college guidebooks, which were released in five annual editions from Penguin Books. Six years later he raised angel financing to start Unigo, which according to the Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg, "is a college-information resource built for the age of YouTube and Facebook." Jordan galvanized a community of the nation's top college counselors and enrolled college students, and curated both an authoritative college admissions / financial aid resource and more than 200,000 multimedia reviews of 6,500 campuses across the country. He has designed and forged strategic alliances with iconic publishers including The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and US News & World Report, and through a collaboration with McGraw Hill, Jordan helped create an original curriculum on college and career readiness taught in high schools across America. The son of a veteran public school teacher, Jordan's mission is to make higher education more accessible to the millions of students who apply to universities each year. He was named "One of the Top 30 Young Entrepreneurs in America" by Inc. Magazine, "One of the 100 Most Influential People in New York Business and Technology" by Silicon Alley Insider, and is a regular guest on ABC News. Jordan earned his BA in English at Wesleyan University and studied Literature at The University of Oxford.
