“White Star Capital is the most culturally diverse team I’ve ever been part of. Each investor has experience living and working in different places around the world, which I think is the most crucial part of a VC firm that invests and operates globally.”

A Principal at White Star Capital based in New York, Eddie invests in and works alongside entrepreneurs in both New York and Seoul.

Eddie was previously an Associate at the Asset Management division of J.P.Morgan in New York, where he led AI and ML product development for the Big Data and Business Intelligence Group. He started his career there as an Analyst of the Private Equity Group. Eddie also served in the Republic of Korea Army as a Sergeant, where he was part of the Strategy and Operations unit and was deployed for missions abroad for the UN Peacekeeping Operations.

Eddie holds an MBA from Columbia Business School with a focus on Strategy and Entrepreneurship. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from Syracuse University with a double major in Information Systems and Advertising. Raised in East Coast US, Europe, Africa, and Asia, Eddie calls many places home. He has found his new home in the Upper West Side of New York where he now resides.
