Forbes Under 30 Summit: Huy Duc Pham

***There is an explicit language warning for this mini-season of Business Edge. The thoughts and opinions of our interviewees do not reflect the thoughts and opinions of Alpha Kappa Psi Professional Business Fraternity.

Huy Pham believes that students across the world deserve better, and fixing education has to mean more than just platitudes. What ‘fixing’ means to Huy is:

  • Democratizing access to textbooks: transparency about the full cost of education and lower course content prices. (We’re disrupting an old stodgy textbook business!)
  • Opening up engaging, fully-licensed curriculum content to the marketplace that students actually enjoy interacting with!
  • Speaking with as many higher education institutions as he can, to help them see the world of their students as it could be, not just as it is today
  • Involving educators in the process, so that professors can create their courses in a simple online platform for free while saving students thousands of dollars in annual textbook costs. with the knowledge that their students will only pay $5 – $20 per semester, instead of hundreds (or thousands!) on archaic textbooks

Since 2016, that’s what Classavo has been doing. They’ve been rolling out a simple, affordable, flexible course creator platform for university professors around the world.

This season of Business Edge is sponsored by Montclair Flowers and Gifts. They have been hand-delivering premium floral arrangements and gift baskets to celebrate life’s special moments since 1972. Visit their website at
