Based in New York City, New York, Enstitute is a non-profit organization that attempts to counter the student debt crisis with matching up-and-coming entrepreneurs with founders through a program that lasts two years. The featured video, created by Forbes, is a "day in the life" of Ben Darr, who was matched up with Ben Lerer, the CEO of Thrillist, as his mentor. He discusses why he felt like he had to leave college.
Enstitute's Shaila Ittycheria and Kane Sarhan were named one of the 2013 Echoing Green Fellowship Finalists. "Challenge the traditional debt-bearing higher education model by introducing an apprenticeship-based education program to elevate workforce potential around the globe," Echoing Green wrote about the organization. The idea is to create alternative learning environments through a breadth of small businesses and start-ups.
