Mariano Miranda launched EDaway with the vision of building the first global application to help thousands of students around the world access better educational and college prep opportunities. Starting his business out of his dorm, Miranda worked with low-income students to help them apply to college, with a 100% success rate. Now, EDaway plans to enhance global connectivity in education through the development of digital platforms that assist students applying to college through mentorship and standardized application processes. He attributes much of his success to hard work and the desire to bring opportunities he never had to the youth of today.
