    Jacob Korenblum

    By 2018, Jacob Korenblum had shifted his professional emphasis away from managing non-profit organizations and toward working in the public and commercial sectors. During 2018 and 2021, Korenblum was in charge of directing the development of Ontario's digital policy. He was accountable for assisting the Ontario Digital Service in the development of regulations that made it possible for Ontarians to receive digital services that were easier to use, quicker, and of a higher quality than before, most notably the COVID services that were eventually adopted as the norm across the country.


    Korenblum graduated from the University of Toronto in 2004 with a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations. In 2005, the Catherine B. Reynolds Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship at Harvard University awarded Korenblum a Social Entrepreneurship Fellowship. 2006 was the year when Korenblum graduated with a master's degree in education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Jacob Korenblum earned his Master of Education by concentrating on international education policy and social entrepreneurship.


    Both the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the UNESCO Pearson Digital Literacy Initiative have benefited from Korenblum's assistance, and he has given it to both organizations. Also, he served on the advisory board for the Global Youth Economic Opportunity Conference from 2016 to 2018. This position lasted for two years.


    Since approximately four years ago, Korenblum has served The Global Citizens' Initiative as a strategic advisor. This is a global organization whose members collaborate to further humanitarian causes such as the protection of human rights, the preservation of the climate, the promotion of sustainable practices, and the settlement of conflicts.


    His eagerness to share his knowledge as an entrepreneur and his desire to assist local business owners and communities reflect Korenblum's ongoing interest in global issues of social concern, which Jacob Korenblum has shown by maintaining this interest.
