Aaron Smith is the Co-Founder of Savi. Savi is the leading fintech working to support student loan borrowers and manage repayment (think "TurboTax for student loans"). Savi's platform has found over $700M in potential student loan forgiveness for its users. Savi is the student loan technology platform selected by national partners like AARP, NEA, TIAA, AIG, United Way, and over a hundred other employers, financial institutions, and membership groups. Aaron is a long-time student loan expert and advocate with over a decade of experience in the intersection between higher education and financial technology. Aaron co-founded and served as the original Executive Director of Young Invincibles, one of the largest and most impactful youth advocacy and policy non-profits in the country, with a focus on engaging 18 to 34 year olds. Aaron started YI in 2009 while still a student at Georgetown Law School (from which he still has substantial student loan debt). Through his work at YI, Aaron worked with the Department of Education, the White House, and Congress to make concrete fixes to higher education funding and the student loan process. Aaron has been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Fox News, MSNBC, and CNN.
