Auren is the founder of Modern Mensch Media, an online media company that caters to aspiring Jewish gentlemen around the world. Think GQ for the stylish and successful Jewish man. Auren is also the founder of Girl Justice, a new non-profit technology platform currently under development that will empower charities and individuals from around the world to support the education of girls throughout the developing world.

Auren’s entrepreneurial spirit began when he was a boy, shoveling snow for cash during harsh Michigan winters. His spirit of entrepreneurship has not been without its sense of civic duty, either. In college, Auren was Co-Chair of Voice Your Vote, a non-partisan voter registration organization that registered nearly 5,000 students to vote in an off-year election (2006). This was the third highest total of any university in the country that year.
Additionally, Auren served as Co-Editor-in-Chief of the internationally acclaimed publication, The Michigan Journal of Political Science (MJPS). MJPS has been recognized by UNESCO as one of the top 50 political science publications in the world, even though it is entirely undergraduate-run.
Auren first got involved with marketing while still in college, in the year 2009. After resolving to himself that he wouldn’t settle for the traditional desk job, Auren sought to generate income and wealth as a location-independent entrepreneur. Auren discovered affiliate marketing, and immediately learned advanced-level strategies for success in lead generation, pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, and landing page development. After generating five figures in profit in his first year, the affiliate marketing industry changed dramatically, and as such Auren switched gears.
Coinciding with a move to Los Angeles, Auren began a career as a social media strategist. Combining his passion for social good and changing the world with his newfound prowess in social media, Auren joined The HUB LA as their new Director of Social Media. The HUB LA is a highly successful co-working space for social entrepreneurs and sustainable businesses, and Auren’s social media and overall marketing strategy was instrumental in the company’s eventual launch and profitability.
Determined to continue making a bold impact on the world, Auren joined forces with Causecast while in Los Angeles, managing a blog for CEO Ryan Scott on the intersection of cause, social good, and business. The blog, entitled Cause Integration, was so successful that Auren was given a blogging account with the Huffington Post, in order to amplify his message of opportunity by combining business and cause to a global audience. While Auren no longer works with Causecast, he blogs for the Huffington Post to this day.
Upon his return to Michigan, Auren began to integrate his deep understanding of digital marketing, social media, lead generation, and more for the benefit of larger companies and brands. Auren joined international supply chain software company POOL4TOOL America as its de-facto Director of Marketing, managing tightly integrated branding and lead generation campaigns that would generate significant new business opportunity, as well as architecting an overall marketing strategy for continued U.S. market rollout of the POOL4TOOL technology.
As of now, Auren Kaplan is a high-performing marketing veteran with numerous concrete wins under his belt. His ability to construct marketing strategy at a high level was recently enhanced by a Marketing Strategy Certificate earned in conjunction with Cornell University’s Johnson Graduate School of Management. His capabilities include not only strategy but execution of all facets of digital marketing, including lead and demand generation, search engine marketing (paid and organic), social media, as well as print-based and event-based marketing.
Auren has consistently been a supporter of causes that benefit human beings around the world. Auren is a strong supporter of the cause of educating girls around the world. The reason is that studies have shown that educated girls earn more, and then reinvest more of their money in their families. As a result, educating girls is the #1 way to end the cycle of generational poverty, as mothers can earn more and then spend their earnings to educate their children.
Auren is a supporter of these organizations that educate girls throughout the developing world:
Auren additionally supports charities that work to help provide opportunity to the impoverished of the developing world. The global poor lack economic economic opportunity, access to clean water and sanitation. In addition to the above organizations, please consider supporting the following as well:
- charity: water - Builds Water Wells Throughout The Developing World
- Kiva - Micro-Loans To Developing World Entrepreneurs
- International Development Enterprises (IDE) - Supports Small-Scale Developing World Entrepreneurs
