THE B20 & G20  /  YOUNG LEADERS 3.0  /  FORBES




Thirteen years ago, as a loving father, observant globetrotter, and education technology CEO, JASON L. MA saw that most young people (including his own two daughters) felt angsty or lost. High achievers were often stressed out or anxiety-ridden, and almost all students hadn’t unleashed their full potential. Wasted or “undertapped” potential, he thought. What if I help them really shine, win, grow, and be happier—with greater impact and long-term gains?

“Young Leaders 3.0: Stories, Insights, and Tips for Next-Generation Achievers,” a critically acclaimed book authored by Jason Ma, along with 23 exemplary 17-to-24-year-old leaders and chapter contributors.

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