Tony Wan

Managing Editor

Tony Wan is Managing Editor at EdSurge where he covers business and financing trends in the edtech industry, and frets over stories, semantics and snappy headlines. He was named one of Forbes’ “30 Under 30” in Education in 2014. Prior to joining he co-founded a startup that developed a game best described as “Zelda with math.”
He once aspired to be a history professor after getting his B.A. in History from the University of California at San Diego. Then he finished his M.A. in East Asian Studies from Stanford University. And the rest is history.
