A consumer Internet growth expert, Ed Baker began excelling at creating online enterprises as a student at Harvard University, where he cofounded a website that went viral on campus on Valentine's Day 1999. After working three years as a management consultant and two years in private equity, he enrolled in the MBA program at Stanford University and subsequently cofounded two Internet-based companies, including a Facebook application that garnered 5 million users within five weeks.
After earning his MBA in 2008, Ed Baker cofounded Friend.ly and then held executive business growth positions at both Facebook and Uber. He was with Facebook when the social network reached 1 billion active monthly users for the first time in October 2012 and oversaw extensive growth through four years at Uber. Upon joining Uber, he managed a five-person team that later expanded to over 500 people. The company had completed fewer than 20 million trips before he was hired, and by the time he left in 2017, Uber was completing over 20 million every weekend.
Mr. Baker presently serves as a growth advisor to four online-based startup companies. Beyond his professional pursuits, he's an avid triathlete who is training to compete in the 2018 Ironman World Championships. Additionally, Ed Baker enjoys rowing and has similar plans to compete in the 2018 World Indoor Rowing Championships.
