The SOLVED founders and team members are educators. Unlike most Silicon Valley tech companies, we are committed to building products that elevate your school rather than our brand.

SOLVED Team working

Meet Our Team


Ben Carney, CEO

Fresh out of college, Ben Carney taught mathematics in two NYC DOE public high schools while simultaneously obtaining a Masters of Teaching from Pace University and a Masters of Education Policy at New York University. ​Embracing differentiation was a key component of Ben’s teaching philosophy as his students' mathematical abilities ranged from well below grade-level to incredibly advanced. So Ben asked, “if we believe in differentiation, then why don’t we simply take it one step further and truly embrace personalized learning experiences for all students?”​
Ben has been obsessed with personalized learning ever since he began his journey as an independent Education Consultant in 2013. Over time, as an instructional coach, he collaborated with several teachers to modernize mathematics instruction by implementing a variety of blended learning models. Most recently, Ben has expanded the SOLVED services and the team of Innovative Education Experts. SOLVED has designed and built over 300 custom school & district mobile apps and websites, continues to bring innovative solutions to classroom teachers in over 250 schools, and expanded the SOLVED team to over 80 experts.
