Maurya Couvares, is the CEO and co-founder of ScriptEd. A new job led Maurya to learn to code, which led to founding ScriptEd. She wanted to build a pathway to the tech economy for students who might not otherwise have the opportunity. Prior to ScriptEd, Maurya was a middle school teacher in Philadelphia, and coordinated volunteer-based after- and out-of-school programs for NYC high schoolers. Maurya was named as one of seven millennials “too busy changing the world to take selfies.” She spends her free time training for and competing in triathlons.
