Ike Harvey is a Fellow at Blackstone Entrepreneurs Network (BEN). Ike was raised in Denver graduating from George Washington High School and getting his bachelors degree from Metropolitan State University of Denver.
His passion for the community he was raised in has led him to become a middle school math teacher at a local school, as well as taking every opportunities to learn how to create positive programs and jobs for the youth coming up after him.
He choose to apply to BEN because it gives him an opportunity to learn more about starting and running a company. This is important to him because he would like to find a way to merge business with schools to allow students to gain experience as well as education in the workforce before they ever graduate high school.
In his free time Ike coaches and plays basketball, climbs 14ers, and is working on a summer DIY project with a tree stump.
