SpanOne was founded with a simple goal of helping high school students achieve their college goals…find the best college for them to thrive, a plan to position themselves to get in, and the best financial option to pay for it. There’s greater competition than ever for the college of your choice. Tuition keeps rising with a myriad of options for financial aid. It’s all more complex with the need to prepare earlier than ever. An expert college counselor and early college planning can help you achieve your college goals.
Founded in 2013 by a successful EdTech entrepreneur, Vasu Eda, SpanOne boasts a strong team of consultants with experience in guiding students to the top colleges and the BS/MD direct medical programs. Vasu is also a co-founder and CEO of RiseSharp, a social impact venture with a mission to change the college to job trajectory for millions of college students in India. Previously, Vasu founded an on-demand talent management and e-Learning company, Boniva Software (acquired by SSA Global). After obtaining his MBA at Columbia University, Vasu worked at Lucent Technologies and Intel Corporation in the areas of corporate strategy, mergers and acquisitions, and financial planning. Vasu is a parent of three children…UC Berkeley graduate, Stanford University students. He is a regular guest speaker at colleges on how to gain valuable experience while in college and how to transition from college to career successfully.

What Parents Are Saying About Our College Counselors
"We started working with a SpanOne advisor in our son's sophomore year. It was one of the best decisions that we ever took. Our advisor is not only helping our son plan and prepare for college, but also brought a sense of confidence and calmness to a very anxious situation."
"As a parent of international student, I was not fully aware of the process and competitiveness associated with getting into top colleges in the US. Our SpanOne Advisor, Ms. Christine, guided us step by step through the complete college research and applications. To our surprise, our son got into top rated undergraduate business school, his first choice. I have already recommended SpanOne to some of my friends."
