Marwell founded nonprofit Education Superhighway in 2012 with a mission to provide high speed internet in every public school classroom in America. He founded it on the foundational belief that education opens doors for people. He saw inequities in education across the country and knew that access to the internet could be a playing field leveler.
Along with his efforts with Education Superhighway, Marwell is also the co-founder and executive chairman of Ignite! Reading, an English literacy provider that works with schools to address literacy problems. He worked for several years at California-based investment adviser, Criterion Capital Management, and was the president and co-founder of a private international directory assistance provider, Infonxx.
He began his career as an associate at a management consulting firm and earned an MBA at Harvard Business School where he also earned a Bachelor of Economics.
