CEO Martin Claure got his start as one of the first hires at wireless company Brightstar after earning a degree in Manufacturing Engineering from Boston University and an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. He then went on to scale and successfully sell his own fintech startup in Peru, as well as develop a publicly traded cleantech ETF (LIT). From there, Martin founded and ran MC Capital, where he oversaw a first round of start-up launches and real estate developments. Over 75% of the start-up launches were successful exits, generating MOICs ranging from 2-5x, while the remaining ventures remain in growth mode under entrepreneurial leadership. Martin transitioned to a passive role at MC Capital in September 2019 when he joined Aprende Institute as full time CEO.
