startupsantaThe Bottom Line (Air Date: November 15, 2016) – Host Doug Wells recently spoke with Clint Betts, founder and editor-in-chief of Beehive Startups, about Startup Santa, a book-drive challenge for Utah tech companies and businesses to raise books for low-income families. Betts says two out of every three Utah children living in low-income families and attending 3rd grade do not read at a proficient level. He says literacy and access to books at home at a young age is an important indicator of a child’s outlook for future academic and professional success.
