As a father and tech CEO thirteen years ago, JASON MA noticed that most young people—our next generation—had yet to unleash their full potential. He then decided to dedicate his second career to transforming young achievers and preparing them to gain admission to great universities, thrive in impactful careers, and cultivate powerful mindsets and soft skills.

Since then, Jason has built a distinctive track record in having successfully inspired and guided 1-on-1 hundreds of Gen Z and Millennial achievers—with pragmatic emotional, social, and leadership intelligence (“3EQ”).

Today, ThreeEQ is proud to maintain a 100% success rate and a 100% peace-of-mind guarantee with coachable and committed high-achieving students in our selected HNW Private Client families worldwide.

While Chief Investment Officers and CFOs are, respectively, vital for family offices and companies, ThreeEQ founder/CEO Jason Ma is sought after as the Chief Mentor of Next-Gen Leaders and a trusted top advisor in high-level circles.

Jason and Team ThreeEQ specialize in:

  • HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS: Foremost, elite college planning, applications (e.g. essays, etc.), and admissions counseling for gaining acceptance into top-tier, best-fit colleges and beyond (view the 24 line items in 3 strategic phases). This also includes academic planning; extracurricular and summer activity planning; test prep planning; various other application components; honing a visionary growth mindset, relevant strategies, and execution; and development of leadership and other soft skills.
  • YOUNG ADULTS IN COLLEGE & AT WORK: Impactful career, leadership, internship, academic, activity, connectivity, and personal next-level success coaching (depending on life stage). How aware are you that numerous university students and young professionals, including high achievers, are often stressed-out, anxiety-filled, or a bit lost? Wise families get our help to raise their young adults’ trajectory of success, achievements, well-being, and then some.
  • PARENTS: Providing insight into the avoidable but common and costly mistakes made even by families with parents who are successful in their own career, what you can do to advantage your child(ren), and more. Given our guidance, families gain peace of mind, enrich relationships, and mitigate risk of opportunity loss—all with sound family values. We also ease succession planning. Hint: Start early…
