For the past seven years, Mandela Schumacher-Hodge has dedicated her life to improving both the educational outcomes of students, as well as the professional opportunities for educators.

Beginning her career in 2008 as a Teach for America corps member in South Central Los Angeles, Mandela was quickly promoted as Lead Teacher in her second teaching position. After obtaining a Masters Degree in Education Administration and Policy, Mandela was admitted into one of the nation’s top Ph.D. education programs at UCLA.

In 2011, Mandela co-founded Tioki, the “The LinkedIn for Educators.” Funded by Kapor Capital, 500 Startups, and Imagine K12, Tioki empowered educators in 28 countries around the world with the resources, tools,

and network to affect change in schools and beyond.

Currently, Mandela is the Director of Startup Education, the largest grassroots initiative in the world dedicated to fostering education innovation. Having expanded to over 25 cities in 5 continents, Startup Education gives everyone, everywhere a unique opportunity to play a leading role in shaping the future of education.

In January 2014, Mandela was named to the 2014 Forbes “30 Under 30 in Education” list, a distinction that recognizes her influential accomplishments at the intersection of education, technology and entrepreneurship. She has had the opportunity to share the vision of utilizing technology, entrepreneurship, and community-building as a means to improve education outcomes at such events as the Bill & Melinda Gates Symposium, Facebook’s Female Entrepreneurship Initiative, and LAUNCH Edu.
