G2 Collective is proud to introduce our first major angel investor, Mr. Eduardo Castro-Wright. In addition to his other investments, Mr. Castro- Wright, a patron of education, is particularly interested in the vision and mission of G2 Collective. Working closely with the Founders since February of 2012, he has been invaluably supportive in the development of our “eTeach™ advantage” strategy.
Mr. Castro-Wright served as Vice Chairman of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. until retiring in 2012. Responsible for leading Wal-Mart U.S. and overseeing its Global Procurement operations, he also served as the CEO and President of Global eCommerce and Global Sourcing at Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Before Wal-Mart Eduardo served as CEO and President of Honeywell Transportation and Power Services, as well as President of Nabisco Inc. International Units.
It is an honor and privilege to have the support of such an accomplished individual at this stage in our development. Mr. Castro-Wright’s substantial investment in G2 Collective brings us much closer to our bridge round funding goal of $750k. More importantly, his participation as an advisor of strategy and operations has been invaluable. His leadership and business experience are a welcome addition to our team, and we look forward to his continuing involvement with G2 Collective.
