Ray Liu

I'm a '19 Duke grad that studied Economics and Entrepreneurship. I’m passionate about education technology and community-building. While at Duke, I founded an edtech startup that helps high schools set up peer tutoring programs, and have worked in sales/growth roles at other startups since. My hobbies include rock climbing, hiking, meditation, and watching NBA.
