Michael is a first-generation, low-income student who earned a Wharton bachelor’s degree in three separate concentrations—entrepreneurship management, finance, and marketing and operations management at the University of Pennsylvania. He’s already launched his first full-fledged business, InstaHub, which is gaining momentum by the minute. He is a Gates Millennium Scholar who believes that access to higher education can help break the cycle of poverty and should be a priority. Today, Michael started a cleantech startup, InstaHub, that focuses on eliminating hundreds of billions of dollars of annual electricity waste through "snap-on” automation devices that enhance, rather than replace, existing building infrastructure.
