Event Details

Launching and Scaling a Social Venture:

Gerald Chertavian, Founder and CEO, Year Up (HBS MBA '92)

November 19, 5:00 - 6:00 p.m., Harvard Business School, Spangler Auditorium

Join us for a conversation led by Professor Allen Grossman. In 2000, Gerald Chertavian founded Year Up, which seeks to close the Opportunity Divide by providing urban young adults with the skills, experience, and support that will empower them to reach their potential through professional careers and higher education. With its annual operating budget exceeding $50M, Year Up is one of the fastest growing non-profits in the nation. It has been recognized by Fast Company and The Monitor Group as one of the top 25 organizations using business excellence to engineer social change.  

This past summer, Gerald Chertavian released the New York Times best seller, A Year Up. This story shares the challenges of chasing the American dream when you’re stuck on the wrong side of the Opportunity Divide - and how Year Up is closing this Divide for thousands of young adults.
