ThreeEQ is a premier education and global business consultancy.
We are also deeply and continuously engaged in applied research.

1. We are the Next Gen’s foremost mentor and coach for (Ivy League and highly competitive) college admissions, leadership 3.0, high-end career, and personal life success. We have inspired and guided successfully 1-on-1 numerous Gen Z and millennial achievers in selected families and companies to accomplish great results, live more happily, and transform upward—with pragmatic emotional, social, and leadership intelligence (“3EQ”) for greater impact and long-term gains (and without the usual stress, anxiety, and sleep deprivation!).

2. Besides mentoring and producing next-gen leaders, ThreeEQ helps selected (tech) companies, family enterprises, and family offices take their successes to next levels by serving as a consummate CEO/board strategic advisor, global business rainmaker, and/or C-suite/executive coach. To do so, we apply our seasoned repertoire and business acumen, and engage our high-powered, worldwide network of tycoons, Forbes Global CEOs, Fortune 500 C-suites, G20 business and education leaders, family offices, etc.

3. In addition, ThreeEQ founder Jason Ma is a sought-after speaker, group coach, and masterclass leader for business, family, education, and government audiences around the world.









Becoming a great leader and rising as one require pragmatic 3EQ’
—emotional, social, and leadership intelligence. The good news
is that you can raise yours and keep honing it.”
—Jason L. Ma


“Young Leaders 3.0” acclaimed author Jason Ma and 23 exemplary 17-to-24-year-old leaders and chapter contributors

As a loving father, observant globetrotter, and edtech CEO 13 years ago, Jason Ma saw that most young people (including his own two daughters) felt a bit angsty or lost, that high achievers were overstressed or overanxious, and that almost all students had yet to unleash their full potential and actualize their best selves. Wasted or untapped potential, leaving future money on the table, he thought. What if I help them really shine, win, grow, and be happier—with greater impact and long-term gains?

Jason also noticed that there was a dearth of truly high-quality, next-generation leaders around the world. He pondered and decided to dedicate his second career to transforming young achievers, preparing them to gain admission to great universities, mentoring them to develop powerful mindsets and soft skills, and guiding them to enter and thrive in high-end careers as rising, impactful leaders.
