About the author, Edwin

From Green Beret to Private Equity...

Hello, my name is Edwin, I am a social iMpact investor and a managing partner of a private equity management group, Vertical Fund Management. I believe in People πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦ | Purpose 🌎 | Profit πŸ’° and this is reflected not only in the mission of my company, but will be the topic for an upcoming podcast I will be hosting.

My fund and I are focused on addressing an epidemic social dilemma seen throughout the US today, the Veteran dilemma of Homelessness 🏚, Unemployment πŸ›’ and the loss of a Purpose Driven Life. Our goal is to eradicate this dilemma by addressing sustainability, conservational, and technological social challenges through Real Estate Investing.

Why is the Veteran dilemma so close to my heart? Having been honorably discharged after 13 1/2 years of service in the United States Army, with multiple combat tours as an Infantryman, and as a Green Beret, I experienced the challenges that veterans go through; adapting to civilian life again, finding purpose after the service, struggles with the experiences I endured and lived through, and most importantly how to reintegrate with my family.

We have all heard the statistic of veteran suicide rate being higher than their civilian counterparts. The veteran community also suffers from increasing homelessness and struggles with readjusting to civilian life and more importantly finding their new life's life's purpose outside of the military.

I believe that the veteran community's dilemma can be solved by addressing sustainability, conservational and technological social challenges through real estate investing, and this is exactly what my fund and I are focused on solving. If you would like to find out more about becoming a guest on the podcast becoming a partner investor with our fund, or how your organization can partner with us to address Veteran Homelessness 🏚, Unemployment πŸ›’ and the loss of a Purpose Driven Life, please reach out via email
