Fourteen 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
