Child care is broken. Silicon Valley thinks it can fix that, too

Where and how we work has changed dramatically over the last several decades. In response to great cultural and social transformations that affect young children, Furman University alums Brandon Hinman ’03 (philosophy), Grady Powell ’03 (economics) and Joe Waters ’05 (history) launched non-profit think tank Capita earlier this year. Their company was featured in a Quartz article by Jenny Anderson. Said Capita co-founder and CEO Waters, “We are interested in the future of caregiving in light of the future of work. How does child care need to adapt as the workforce and workplace change?” Capita collaborates with KnowledgeWorks, a Cincinnati-based education research organization led by Furman alum, Chuck Ambrose ’83 (sociology).
