At its annual Most Powerful Women Summit in Washington, D.C., Fortune announced the selection of Linda Chaput, founder and chief executive officer of Agile Mind, Inc., as one of the top 10 female small-business entrepreneurs in the country for 2010.

Since its founding in 2001, Agile Mind has collaborated with the Dana Center to develop, publish, and disseminate research-based resources to support high achievement for all students, regardless of their socioeconomic background.

“The collaboration with the Dana Center has been the foundation of our success,” says Chaput. “They are national leaders in developing highly effective mathematics and science resources that place educators at the center of instruction and respectfully support their most promising practices.”

Agile Mind provides a next-generation system for the teaching and learning of mathematics and science that enables educators to teach more effectively and equips students to take more responsibility for their achievement. To date, the company has served more than 20,000 educators and 2 million students, with highly promising results.

“We share with the Dana Center a core commitment to equity,” says Chaput. “Through our innovative delivery of high-quality instructional materials—at very low cost—we help local communities close the achievement gap in mathematics and science.”
