Jared Kleinert is the South Florida 2 Billion Under 20 Chapter Leader.
At 15, Jared started NowIGetIt.com, an edtech startup that gave students access to tutors across the globe via webchat for affordable prices. At 16, he founded another company called Synergist, a crowdsourcing site for social entrepreneurs to create, collaborate, and share ideas for social movements and enterprises, earning him the title of the “Definition of a Social Entrepreneur” by Forbes. Jared has also worked at two high growth startups, helping to create a product called Learnist that raised $20 million and was used by over 1 million people in its first year, and helping CEOs keep a pulse on their companies at another start-up called 15Five. Jared initiated the idea for 2 Billion Under 20 after hearing an inspirational speech at the 2012 Under 20 Summit in New York last November (which is where he also met Stacey).
