Meet The CEO
Al Ko Headshot

No seriously, you'll really get to meet him.

While interning with Early Warning, you will get the chance to connect with our CEO Al Ko and hear about his career journey.

Al assumed the position of CEO of Early Warning in May 2019, but his story did not start there. Al received his B.A. in History and International Studies at Yale University and went onto to achieve his J.D. from Harvard University.

Al is invested in our interns' academic and career success because he understands they are the future of Early Warning and work force beyond.


“Interning at Early Warning gave me the opportunity to use the knowledge I’ve learned in school while allowing me to sharpen my communication and presentation skills in a real work environment. I really enjoyed being able to shadow people in various roles and not only observe, but get involved in several projects.”

- Megan Morrow, Digital Marketing Intern, Summer ‘21
