Yenko is a mobile-first platform that uses predictive analytics, real-time grade tracking and productivity tools to help college students stay on track academically and financially and ultimately, to graduate from college. It was born out of Margo Wright's frustration that only 41% of U.S. adults over the age of 25 have earned a post-secondary credential. The name Yenko, derived from the Akan translation of“Let’s go!” is a clarion call to action which conveys the urgency needed to solve the college completion problem. It is also a nod to Margo Wright’s Ghanaian heritage.
