The Social Innovation Studio at HKS and the Office of Career Advancement will welcome Rey Faustino on Wednesday, September 28. Rey will discuss his experience being in practice as a social innovator while also an HKS student, and his journey in launching and leading One Degree: a nonprofit tech startup that helps low-income families access services they need to overcome poverty. After writing the business plan during his first semester at HKS, One Degree has since reached over 100,000 people in the Bay Area and has garnered the support of top funders, such as Echoing Green, Y Combinator, Google.org, Kresge Foundation, and the Knight Foundation.
