Meet the Team

The founders of Colorwave are a group of leaders committed to educational equity.


These leaders have come together through Stiles Hall, a 135 year-old non-profit pipeline to equity that helps 200+ Black, Latinx, and Native high school and community college students gain admission to top universities annually. Through their collective experience, they’ve realized the critical role that economic freedom plays in achieving lasting change.
