Announcing Hope Street Group’s Chief Technology Officer 


I’m excited to share with you that Will Hanson has joined Hope Street Group as our new Chief Technology Officer. Will used to be an educator, before stepping into the world of technology and has led several successful startups as CTO.

In his own words,

  • Hi I’m Will Hanson,
  • I’m a previous teacher turned engineer and entrepreneur and I’m excited to tackle the problem of students understanding their career options head on.
  • I had the pleasure of being the technical founder of Intuit’s B2C innovation lab, the first engineering fellow at Capital One, and founder of 3 series A+ tech startups.
  • Student career awareness is a problem that’s been on my mind for years, and the opportunity to get to work on it with David and the team is very exciting!

As we embark on our next chapter at Hope Street Group, we will be sharpening our focus to work at the intersection of education and workforce. Going forward, our programs will work to ensure that our education system has the tools, community support and resources needed to prepare our youth for a changing workforce. We believe the focus on helping students be college and career ready is what’s necessary for Hope Street Group to most effectively create economic opportunity for all Americans. 

Technology will become a larger component of our strategy in this next chapter of our journey. I look forward to seeing Will’s leadership to help schools build the necessary tools to effectively guide youth towards better opportunities!

Thanks as ever for your support,

David Ma

CEO, Hope Street Group
