Our Board of Directors

Christopher Wright

Christopher is the Founder of Quoria Foundation in addition to being the President of the Board and CEO. 

 

He is a dedicated social entrepreneur who is passionate about finding simple, creative, and innovative solutions to systemic problems. 

 

Quoria's first project, Math4ALL, is the outgrowth of that passion coupled with his 30 years as an educational software entrepreneur. Math4ALL represents a genre of ed tech he calls “massively multilingual.” Math4ALL will...

• Help mainstream English language learners alongside their English-speaking peers while they learn English.

• Engage them in a highly compelling math tool — at the core of STEM — from their first day of school.

Christopher…

  • Conceptualized Math4ALL.

  • Delineated the core features and functionality of the minimum viable product (MVP) version, the multi-platform, full-featured version, and the international version (details available upon request).

  • Designed Math4ALL’s unique market position — a product that can be used...

    • In schools

    • In homes

    • By for-profit ed tech websites

    • By nonprofit ed tech websites.

  • Developed Math4ALL’s distribution model.

Christopher is overseeing all aspects of Math4ALL’s software development.

 

Plus, he assembled Quoria’s board and Council of Advisors — a collection of experts tailor-made to assist in Math4ALL’s development, promotion, and adoption. Areas of expertise include software development, UI/UX design, translations, marketing, finance, and nonprofit management.

 

Prior to founding Quoria, he was the President of Barnum Software, a developer and publisher of the educational software, Quarter Mile Math. Math4ALL is an updated, 21st Century version of that software being written from the ground up.

Christopher designed multiple iterations of Quarter Mile Math and hired and managed the software engineering team that executed those designs.

 

In addition, he oversaw Quarter Mile Math’s sales and marketing. Christopher negotiated Quarter Mile Math’s adoption by Sylvan Learning as a math practice component of their “Math Essentials” curriculum in all of their centers in North America. Quarter Mile Math was chosen for use in substantially all elementary schools in the Clark County School District (Las Vegas and surrounding area and the fifth largest school district in the U.S.).

Christopher received a bachelors degree in Religious Studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
