Chancellor's Fellows - Alumnus Talk: Felix Lloyd

Join us for a fireside chat with Chancellor’s Alum Felix Brandon Lloyd, Co-Founder and CEO at Zoobean.  Felix’s bio is below.  This is an informal opportunity to speak with a CGFP alum and ask questions.

Felix Brandon Lloyd is Co-founder and President of Zoobean, which helps librarians and educators facilitate reading challenges to build a culture of reading in their communities. The company's flagship SaaS platform and mobile app, called Beanstack, is like a "Fitbit for Reading" -- making it easier to track reading, keep readers motivated, and gain actionable insights.

In April 2014, Felix and Zoobean co-founder Jordan Bookey were featured on the ABC television show "Shark Tank" through which they gained an investment for Zoobean from businessman Mark Cuban. Prior to starting Zoobean, Felix was named Washington, D.C.'s Teacher of the Year while teaching at the SEED Public Charter School.

After earning his Masters of Fine Arts from Washington University in Saint Louis as a Chancellor's Fellow in 2007, Felix received a social enterprise fellowship from Echoing Green. He founded Skill-Life, Inc. -- a technology company that developed MoneyIsland (formerly called CentsCity), an online world where kids learn financial skills.

Skill-Life was acquired by BancVue, Ltd. in January 2010. Felix served as Chief Professor & General Manager of BancVue's MoneyIsland, providing the core financial education product to over 100 community banks and credit unions nationwide, reaching over 100,000 families and 300 school districts.

Prior to attending Wash U, Felix earned a Bachelors of Arts from Syracuse University where he was the commencement student speaker.
