Discover and develop the potential in everyone

Discover and develop the potential in everyone

Hi, we’re Twenty! We’re a brand-new nonprofit on a mission to build a community that helps discover and develop the potential in everyone. We’re out to improve the way potential is identified and amplified, so that nobody is overlooked and so science replaces subjectivity in the selection process.

We are pre-product and pre-website, but we already have an incredible group of supporters. Sal Khan, founder and CEO of Khan Academy and Bill Jackson, founder of GreatSchools, are both on our board. The Eric and Wendy Schmidt Strategic Innovation Fund is our first funder and Schmidt Futures is our first customer.

We are starting with a focus on teens ages 15-17 who aim to serve others. We are building a global-first, mobile-first platform to help talented teens connect with each other and with opportunities (fellowships, scholarships, etc.). We’ll emerge from 2020 with new ways of identifying potential beyond traditional measures like GPA and the SAT.
