America’s high school dropout crisis is one of the surest routes into poverty and prison. Sagamore identified Elevate as the #1 solution to not only high school competition but poverty alleviation in our nation’s urban public schools. Therefore, Sagamore helped incubate Elevate Indianapolis and continues as an operating partner.
Founded in 2004 by Dan Coats and Jay Hein, Sagamore builds and implements innovative solutions to society’s biggest problems. Through research, consulting, and impact investing, we fight for a society where governments provide order, businesses improve communities, and citizens are engaged.
