OUR FOUNDER’S JOURNEY
Thirteen years ago, as a loving father, observant globetrotter, and education technology CEO, Jason 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?
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.
Jason Ma and his teams at his previous education company and his current firm, ThreeEQ, have built a distinctive track record of providing inspiration and 1-on-1 guidance to driven high schoolers, college students, and working young adults (Gen Z and millennial achievers), as well as some elder leaders. Their results include admission to Ivy League and highly competitive colleges and universities, fulfilling college lives, internships, post-college first jobs, high-end career paths, and other leadership and personal milestones.
Today, ThreeEQ is proud to maintain a 100% success rate (defined by outcomes that clients are happy about) with coachable, committed, high-achieving students in our selected client families. In high-level circles, Jason is known as the Chief Mentor of Next-Gen Leaders.
As a renowned author, Jason has shared some of his teachings to the masses. He was the Forbes contributor on Mentoring Young Leaders for elite college admissions, innovative higher education, next-generation leadership, and entrepreneurship success (1.5M+ views today and counting). In addition, Jason authored the critically acclaimed book Young Leaders 3.0: Stories, Insights, and Tips for Next-Generation Achievers, along with a diverse group of 23 exemplary 17-to-24-year-old leaders as chapter contributors.
During this journey, Jason was a delegate for 8 years to the by-invitation-only Forbes Global CEO Conference. He reminisces lightheartedly: “I was the worst house in the best neighborhood (of billionaires and UHNWIs)!”
As a global business and education leader, entrepreneur, and investor, Jason has accumulated 36 years of seasoned experience in technology, education, and other industries, and nearly 3 million miles of world travel across Asia Pacific, Europe/Middle East, and the Americas. At ThreeEQ, Jason continues to offer strategic advice and rainmaking services for selected (tech) companies and family enterprises.
In 2014, Jason was appointed to the the Business Twenty (B20), which is the official voice of the private sector that recommends policies to the G20 Heads of State and governments. The B20 represents the global business community across all G20 member states and all economic sectors. The G20 represents over 80% of the global nominal GDP of nearly US$90 trillion and 2/3 of the world population of 7.8 billion people. Through the G20 and B20 Presidencies of Australia, Turkey, China, Germany, Argentina, Saudi Arabia, and, in 2021, Italy, Jason has served as Silicon Valley’s leading member of the B20 Employment (Future of Work) and Education Taskforce.
As a globally sought-after speaker, moderator, group coach, and masterclass leader, Jason Ma inspires, captivates, and enlightens audiences from Gen Z to billionaires on a variety of topics. Jason has spoken at some of the most elite events and places around the world. These include global CEO/business conferences, B20 forums representing the G20 business community, tech industry and corporate events, World Chinese Economic Summit, Horasis’ Global China and India Business Meetings, Family Office Association, DC Finance, and other family office conferences and meetings, HNW family private events, education summits, Stanford University, UC Berkeley, INSEAD, and Los Angeles Unified School District, as well as special events co-sponsored by alumni clubs from Harvard Business School, Harvard, Stanford Graduate School of Business, UC Berkeley Haas, and Wharton.
