Alan Levy is the Founder and President of Epee Education. After many years mentoring students and young professionals entering the pharmaceutical industry, Alan found himself consistently discussing topics that new grads should know but were not being taught. Realizing this was systemic across all the local, highly reputable universities, Alan started looking for a better way to deal with it. After learning it wasn't just Pharma, Alan realized a business needed to be formed to solve the full extent of the issue.
Epee Education developed as his solution. A virtual education platform enabling experienced professionals to share actual experiences could bridge the knowledge gap between education and real-life for young professionals around the world.
