Founder & Managing Partner
Eddie Cullen is the founder and managing partner of Impact USA Group. He has spent most of his career working with educational institutions and startup companies.
He began his career as a Jesuit Volunteer in Phoenix working at Brophy Preparatory School. He lived on $85 a month working with high school students while participating in a number of community service trips, such as the Kino Border Initiative in Nogales, Friends of the Orphans Program in Guatemala, Habitat for Humanity in New Orleans, Mountaintop Mining Impact in West Virginia, and 15+ more community service oriented projects.
Following Brophy Prep, Eddie spent a year in Australia playing competitive rugby with GPS in the Queensland Premier Rugby League and acting as a Board Master at Marist College Ashgrove.
Then he entered into the startup world founding his first company Bridge-USA creating a game to train students on their portfolio management skills.
Eddie became Director of Innovation for the sole incubator at his alma mater called the Fordham Foundry. He became first employee at Grand Central Tech (now known as Company.co) where he worked with startups and built the GCT Innovation Program for students aged 15-23. After GCT, he opened Bronx.Tech to consult corporations on internal and external innovation.
Eddie founded Impact USA Group in January 2019.
