    CORE Construction’s rich history started with one key moment in 1937, when our founder, Otto Baum, applied for a loan to start a masonry company. He had nothing to use as collateral except for his proven character and exemplary reputation. When the bank manager asked the loan officer why they should consider Otto's request, the officer simply replied, "I trust him." This event sparked the beginning of a company that would one day grow to multiple locations across the U.S., supported by over 1,200 employees and a strong culture built on the same trust Otto started the company with in 1937.

    In 2012, Forum Desai and Jinal Jhaveri set out to enroll their daughter in pre-school. It was a frustrating process that involved filling out tons of forms, the occasional need for whiteout, and lots of waiting on the phone or in line at the school. As co-founders of Log(n), a design and engineering firm that specializes in education technology, they had built several custom enrollment systems for school systems throughout the country, but it wasn’t until this moment that they realized that all schools, and families, can benefit from a streamlined and modernized system. Shortly afterward, SchoolMint was founded. Apex Learning
