Welcome to a new episode of the Grow Ensemble Podcast. In today’s episode, we speak with Austin Buchan, the CEO of College Forward, a non-profit based in Austin, Texas.

In our chat, we cover a lot, but a few things specifically that you will get a lot of value from. First and foremost, we talk about College Forward’s evolution and how they have and are innovating in response to customer, in their case, student feedback.

We also talk about the challenges for both Austin and the organization in his transition to taking over as CEO for a founder. Finally, we talk about the inherent contradiction that College Forward is facing in attempting to solve the social problem and as well, creating a long-term sustainable business.

So don’t miss out and be sure to listen in to today’s episode!
