DENVER — Guild Education just got a slam-dunk investor: Steph Curry, of the NBA Golden State Warriors, has assisted the Denver-based company with funds to accelerate its mission and impact.

“Like all of us here at Guild, Stephen recognizes that while talent is equally distributed, opportunity is not,” said Rachel Carlson, Guild Education CEO & Co-Founder, in a prepared statement. “We are excited to partner with Stephen to unlock opportunity through education for even more working Americans, and we are grateful for his commitment to closing the education gap – particularly among low and middle-income Americans.”
