Founder | CMO
A natural (and serial) entrepreneur, Ed started his first business in college and never looked back. After a brief stint in corporate America, he took a severance package from Shark Tank's Mr. Wonderful (Kevin O'Leary) and built a successful coffee franchise. A part-time marketing consultant who has worked with dozens of SMB's, Ed understands community connections. A married father of 3, he cares deeply about education and the future of it.
Ed has owned successful businesses focused on local services, marketing consulting, and food service. A former software salesman, he knew early on in his career that running his own business was right for him.
When he's not running a successful coffee house fanchise, he can be found volunteering at his local church, working with community groups, consulting small businesses, and engaging the community. Ed joined RoundShip because he saw early on that small businesses would be much more likely to offer scholarships if they had tools that made the process simple.
