Aaron has a strong track record of entrepreneurial successes in the social sector. After graduating from Yale, Aaron became a Head Start teacher and founded Jumpstart, an organization that pairs college students with preschoolers to develop literacy, language and social skills. What began as an idea in Aaron's dorm room went on to become a national organization and leader in early childhood education; today Jumpstart engages 4,000 college students in service to nearly 15,000 children in 20 states, and the District of Columbia and more than 75 communities across the country. While at Jumpstart, Aaron also founded and served as Chair of Schoolsuccess.net, a venture-backed for-profit spin off of Jumpstart that created the first on-line versions of the High/Scope COR and Creative Curriculum's Developmental Continuum. The company was acquired by Pearson in 2000. Aaron founded Acelero in 2001 and helped develop its programmatic approach, working side by side with Head Start leadership teams from Acelero's first management contact partners.

"We continue to break new ground - demonstrating that a double bottom line company that produces break through child outcome gains for low-income children and families and can also produce a reasonable returns for investors. In this way, we are providing a desperately needed proof point for the emerging world of impact investing," concluded Lieberman.
