Anurag Agarwal is the Founder and CEO of Junior Explorers Inc. (Sarah Sheehan is the Co-Founder and Head of Marketing and Partnerships at Junior Explorers Inc.) Junior Explorers seeks to teach kids about nature and wildlife through fun and engaging learning experiences, and hope to inspire the next generation of environmental stewards. In line with its mission, Junior Explorers donates a percentage of its profits to conservation efforts. Students of Junior Explorers go on ‘adventures’ to different ecosystems every month, beginning with a kit that arrives in the mail at their home. The kit contains collectibles, activities, and information about that particular month’s mission, which the students then use to go online and explore a gamified learning experience through their computers or mobile devices.
Anurag has over 20 years of diverse experience in operating, advisory and investing roles as an entrepreneur, investment banker, private equity investor, Board member and academic professor. He certainly seems to have built up a wealth of experience over the years, which implies a very strong passion for the work he does. Anurag is likely considered to be something of an expert in social enterprises, impact investing, and entrepreneurship given his impressive resume.
