Founder & CEO
A.M. Bhatt was born in India and came to the United States with his mother when he was six years-old (his father had come three years prior to study engineering). For more than six years, he and his mother lived as undocumented immigrants while his father stayed in school to maintain his student visa. A.M. has a personal understanding of how students and adult learners from different backgrounds engage with established systems that tend to be mired in traditional or out-dated modes of thinking. He is committed to helping individuals develop their sense of self and community – equipping them with the technical skills they’ll need to launch or grow a career while, at the same time, empowering them to become agents for humanity-centric change in the world.
A.M. created nonprofit DAE to bridge the gap between corporate America and the realities of underserved communities, using education as a vehicle for social justice while nurturing underrepresented youth with no-cost tech programs and access to digital career and life skills. He also founded U of Next, is on faculty in the University of New Haven’s Graduate Psychology Department, and has 25+ years of advising corporate executives and entrepreneurs. Past clients include Pfizer, Facebook, HAI Group, Siemens, Novartis, Deutsche Bank, United Rentals, Yahoo!, American Express, and many others.
