Meet the Founders

Lane Russell

Lane is a 2018 Princeton University graduate in Economics and an Ivy League champion in Track and Field. He spent his first year out of school in equity derivatives trading at Goldman Sachs before leaving to co-found a YC-backed startup (Flowbot S19). Lane sees The U Experience as a way to improve a broken system that has left many behind and envisions a deconstruction of higher education that makes knowledge and intergenerational mobility accessible to all.

That same year he earned All-America honors in the Pole Vault and competed in the U.S. Olympic Trials for an opportunity to represent Team USA.
