Claire Menke

In a former life Claire was a Stanford-trained field anthropologist who was trying to find the optimal balance between economic viability and ecosystem conservation for low-income native communities in Central and South America. The manifestation she chose to focus on was EcoTourism and development arising as a result.

After witnessing failure of brick-and-mortar education systems in Costa Rica, she shifted her focus to Education Technology, where she has been the sole User Researcher at now two EdTech startups - Versal and Udemy.
