Ethan Fieldman is the founder and president of Study Edge, which employs more than 40 full time people and over 200 part-time people. 

He attended the University of Florida on a National Merit Scholarship and graduated with a BSBA in Finance and a minor in Economics (4.0 overall GPA). In 2010, he won the inaugural $50,000 Cade Prize for Innovation (named for Dr. Robert Cade, the inventor of Gatorade), and he holds more than 20 technology patents.

Ethan serves on the Executive Committee of the board of the north-central Florida region of the State’s workforce development system, and on the statewide board of the mentoring nonprofit,  Take Stock in Children. Ethan and his team assist more than 1,000,000 students and more than 20,000 educators each year.

He lives in Gainesville, Florida with his wife and two young sons…and when he’s not wrestling with his boys or working, he’s designing virtual reality / augmented reality tools for education that he thinks will be the norm within 5 years.
