Six years ago, Laurel Taylor was on the fast track to reaching her career goals. But the weight of the student debt she and her mother had racked up to fund her education rang in at almost $200,000 — and could have held her back from reaching her full potential. Laurel took matters into her own hands, and in 2016 founded Candidly (formerly FutureFuel.io) to address the unmet and urgent market need for solutions that support other individuals and families through every step of the planning, borrowing, and repayment experience.
Before founding Candidly (formerly FutureFuel.io,) Laurel held leadership positions at Google, among other roles.
