Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity/Austin, TXExecutive Director and Chief Operating Officer – Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity – Austin, TX About the Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity The Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity is built from the ground up for the public policy debates of the 21st century. Its mission: to expand economic opportunity to those who least have it, using the tools of individual liberty, free enterprise, and technological innovation. FREOPP is a digital-native organization that is breaking the traditional think tank mold, by identifying and developing reforms that can appeal to younger, tech-savvy Americans: those who believe that progressive outcomes can be achieved through entrepreneurship and individual creativity, and those who believe that America's diversity can be an engine of growth and prosperity. Our work on replacing Obamacare, for example, shows how consumer-driven health care can achieve universal coverage. Our work on higher education focuses on how the online revolution can bring affordable college degrees to everyone, by disrupting the academic cartel. FREOPP was founded in 2016 by Ames Brown and Avik Roy, and includes among its brain trust many of the nation's leading policy minds, including Kristen Soltis Anderson, Lanhee Chen, Daniel Garza, and Scott Winship.
