In this episode of the Strategy Sherpa Show, we feature Karim Abouelnaga, the visionary behind PRACTICE Benefit Corp., who shares his journey from growing up in NYC's challenging public schools to becoming a celebrated education reformer. Karim discusses the pivotal moment when he chose not to rebuild PRACTICE's board—a decision that led to a near bankruptcy and a series of transformative challenges for the organization. He opens up about taking accountability, drastically restructuring the company, and the lessons learned from these experiences. Through his story, listeners will explore the intersection of social entrepreneurship, educational reform, and the resilience required to enact meaningful change. This episode offers a deep dive into overcoming adversity, the significance of strategic leadership, and the impact of second chances in the realm of urban education.
