Advancing social impact through innovation and entrepreneurship

“If not us, who? If not now, when?”—John F. Kennedy, Jr.

With his compass set on innovation, Eddy is a Cornell University Dyson Societal Solutions Scholar whose passion to push beyond traditional best practices has already led to advances in localized, crowdsourced investing for small, minority-owned businesses featured on NPR, and a micro-loan social collective investment project showcased in The Atlantic.

Following a brief pause in his undergraduate studies for financial reasons, Eddy took on a directed examination of a social collective investment model that yielded an entrepreneur-in-residence spot at the Stanford Graduate School of Business Center for Social Innovation.

Eddy applies this entrepreneurial mindset to his day-to-day work, blending risk-taking and creativity with sound concepts. He brings a unique range of perspectives to his community-facing work for a large company’s corporate philanthropy portfolio.
