Avik Roy

The Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity
Co-Founder & President
Austin, Texas


Avik Roy is the President of the Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity (FREOPP.org), a non-partisan, non-profit think tank striving to expand opportunity to those who least have it, using the tools of individual liberty, free enterprise, technological innovation, and pluralism. He is also the Policy Editor at Forbes, and previously served as a policy advisor to Marco Rubio, Rick Perry, and Mitt Romney. National Review has called Avik one of the nation’s “sharpest policy minds,” while the New York Times’ Paul Krugman concedes, “Roy is about as good as you get in this stuff...he actually knows something.”

Several Teneans are involved in FREOPP as board members, scholars, and advisors, including co-founder Ames Brown, Mike Miltenberger, Vivek Ramaswamy, Jon Hartley, Kristen Soltis Anderson, Evan Baehr, Emily Ekins, Aaron Ginn, and Joe Lonsdale.

In a previous life, Avik was a biotech investor at Bain Capital, J.P. Morgan, and other firms, and continues to actively invest in health care ventures and digital assets. He was educated at the Yale University School of Medicine and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he majored in molecular biology. Avik lives in Austin with his wife, Sarah, and two children.
