“Our mindset about schools doesn’t change and schools are not preparing us for the fast changing future.“ Ms. Danielle Strachman serves as a General Partner at 1517 Fund.

She is very passionate about disrupting education. In 2010, during the founding of the Thiel Fellowship, Ms. Strachman joined to lead the design and operations. She is the visionary behind the Thiel Summit series that has been attended by some 2000 young entrepreneurs.
