    This week, we are continuing our Forbes 30 under 30 series with Caroline Recchi. She is the co-founder of EdSights which she founded with her sister Claudia.

    University recruitment and retention directors may be the client, but EdSight's customers are college students, especially those at risk of dropping out. It's a chatbot that checks in with students on issues such as engagement, homework, grades, and personal financial issues and problems.

    104 Ammar Bandukwala | Coder.com

    This week on ReDirected, I got to chat with a co-founder of Coder, Ammar Bandukwala.
    Coder’s three co-founders — Bandukwala, Kyle Carberry, and John Andrew Entwistle — first met online while in high school. The three were soon collaborating to build and monetize Minecraft plugins and servers, eventually moving on to a series of other projects, some successful, some not. Frustrated by the complexities of collaborating remotely on software development, after graduation Ammar, Kyle, and John Andrew moved to Austin and started Coder to create the development tools they wish had been available for them. The trio rented a building they nicknamed “The Shack,” hired a couple of developers, and got to work.

    103 Jeremy Cai | Drop Out Entrepreneurship

    103 Jeremy Cai | Drop Out Entrepreneurship

    Keeping on with our Forbes 30 Under 30 series, today I got to chat with Jeremy Cai.

    Jeremy is the founder of Italic, an online retailer that sells luxury goods without the brand names -- or the corresponding markup. Instead, the company designs its own products and then taps the same manufacturers used by high-end labels like Alexander Wang, Burberry and Prada to spin out brandless versions. The manufacturer sets the price and splits the profits with Italic. Italic sells 100 products, ranging from cashmere sweaters to leather wallets to 400 thread-count sheets, with plans to double its assortment by 2020. It raised $13 million in funding in November 2018.

    102 Julia Haried | Bridging the STEM Gap

    Continuing our Forbes 30 under 30 series, I got to talk to Julia Haried. As the co-founder of MakerGirl, she's working to pave a new path for girls.

    It all started in a social entrepreneurship class at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign when Julia and Elizabeth Engele were inspired by the question "What bothers you?".

    Motivated by their past experiences, MakerGirl was created to inspire young girls to pursue STEM fields through 3D printing sessions in an effort to shrink the gender gap.

    101 Derrick Emsley | Planting 57 Million Trees

    Today, we are continuing our Forbes 30 under 30 series with Derrick Emsley.
    At 16, Derrick and his brother founded a tree planting company that was meant to capitalize on the future of sustainability: carbon offsetting credits. They planted over 150,000 trees while selling carbon offset contracts that totaled over $1 million. While carbon offsetting ended up not being the future, this experience was just the beginning of his tree planting journey. During college, Derrick worked with his fellow co-founders to start tentree, an apparel company that plants ten trees for every piece of clothing sold. So far, the company has planted over 35 million trees - providing local jobs, food security, and environmental benefits
