Sean O'Brien's Bio:

Sean O'Brien is an entrepreneurial leader with a desire to solve problems in education either by starting up new businesses or working as part of a team.

Seeing both Perfect Competition and EDUCATE Athletes grow from inception, to revenue, to profitability informed me throughout my experiences partnering with institutions throughout K-12 and higher education. My experience taught me the value of all of the members of an institution along with the functions they provide from enrollment, to academics, to administration.

In my current role at Ashworth College, we are learning more about and creating solutions for the college transfer problem in US Higher Education. With over 60% of students switching institutions and 16-19 excess credits per graduate, we're partnering with schools on creative ways to help students easily and efficiently complete degrees. Previous to this at Market Motive, I partnered with colleges and universities globally to help them offer current, authoritative digital marketing curriculum to train students for jobs in a high growth field. EDUCATE Athletes was founded in 2010 as the newest online education resource for athletes providing online education and access to an elite leadership network. Reaching athletes in the ways unique to them with high quality, flexible programming from education partners can make an important impact on an athlete's life. Previous to EDUCATE Athletes, I built a successful sports brand at Perfect Competition covered on Fox Sports, USA Today, ESPN, The New Yorker, and elsewhere. The company accounted for helping over: 300 athletes achieve college scholarships, 120 NFL draft picks improve their draft status, and over 200 MLB, NFL, NBA, and NHL veterans improve their performance, while helping over 5000 youth athletes achieve new heights in their development.

8 years of pro hockey throughout North America and Europe did little to advance my entrepreneurial skills, but it was a lot of fun.
