Priten H. Shah

Student at Harvard College | Founder/CEO at United 4 Social Change

I am currently in my sophomore year at Harvard College, after taking two years off to pursue personal projects and to gain experience in education.

I have extensive experience in education, from working as a teaching assistant in a school, private tutor in South Korea, and teaching at and directing various summer programs.

I currently run Suddha.Marketing LLC, a small business marketing and web development firm, using the skills I acquired from running my nonprofits. I dabbled in the education industry for a while through Pain, Passion, and Pursuit Inc., a start-up consulting company that ran projects in college admissions.

My pet project is United 4 Social Change Inc. (U4SC), a platform for a global community that works to spur Social Change by training young activists. During my gap year before college, I started and ran a non-profit organization, the Teach to Learn Foundation, which aimed to increase educational opportunities for the underprivileged, at the end focusing mainly on debate, before I move on to focus on U4SC.

I am working on some other projects as well, and love to chat about Education, Start-Ups, Nonprofit Organizations, the Indian Subcontinent, and Technology with others!
