Where Are They Now?
Jason Shah, INeedAPencil.com (2010)
Status update: Sold!
Jason Shah has received a great deal of press for his company, I Need a Pencil, a free online SAT prep program. From CNN to People magazine, INeedAPencil.com now has a sleeker website and has gained more than 12,000 new students and handfuls of partner organizations since last year. Now, he's found a buyer. "I am still completing the paperwork and transition," he says "but with graduation [from Harvard University] on the horizon, I have found a larger organization to acquire and grow INeedAPencil.com from this year forward." Shah plans to move to Silicon Valley, where he'll be launching a new tech start-up he says is "focused on making businesses more productive and the average employee much happier."
