Rendel Solomon was the oldest of three children growing up in K-Town on Chicago’s West Side – a neighborhood better known for crime than educational opportunities. But Solomon says from day one, he was taught that education was the key to personal and financial success.
With a high school education from the prestigious Latin School of Chicago, Solomon went on to earn a BS in electrical engineering from Tulane University and an MBA from Columbia. After stints in the entertainment industry and engineering, Solomon developed an interest in private equity. Today, he is a managing director at with Muller & Monroe Asset Management.
The career shift also inspired Solomon to create his nonprofit initiative One Stock One Future, which aims to turn one million youth into public company shareholders via workshops and donated funds. He also created League of Superwomen, a networking and panel series showcasing female entrepreneurs.
