Scaling a Co-Learning Community: Chris Turner on building Moonrise.com

Hosted byKerry McDonald|

Chris Turner is a tech entrepreneur turned education entrepreneur who founded Moonrise.com as a colearning space for kids in Decatur, Georgia. I first featured Moonrise in my Forbes column last year and was inspired by Chris’s vision to bring the Moonrise experience to more communities to help make childhood and parenting more joyful and rewarding.

Chris is building an entirely new of category of education that doesn’t fit neatly into existing definitional or regulatory boxes. Encouraging education entrepreneurs like Chris to start and scale their businesses by reducing or eliminating regulatory barriers can go a long way toward expanding access to more diverse, creative education options from which families can choose.
