Students 💛 edgi

Meet our founder

Josh Shapiro

edgi co-founder & CEO

Josh teaches at NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development and previously worked on the digital staff for Andrew Yang's presidential campaign.

I got kicked out of high school when I was eighteen. Five years later I was teaching courses at NYU on creativity, entrepreneurship, technology, and the future of work.

Our education system presents too narrow a path to success. I’m building edgi for the teenage Josh who hated school but would have thrived in an alternative that was exciting and relevant, and gave me a voice in my education.

What edgi students are saying

"I formed close friendships remotely and had an outlet for the questions that traditional schooling hasn’t provided answers to. Edgi...expanded my concept on what education has the potential to be. In doing so I have re-evaluated what is important and engaging to me and developed a deeper confidence in myself."


12th Grade Student, Monument Mountain HS

"Normally in school, barely anyone turns on their cameras and mics, but it took me by surprise that everyone was so welcoming and open during our first meeting! I love how close-knit and low-key the structure is and it feels great knowing we were able to unpack something that is very relevant in the future."


12th Grade Student, Brooklyn Tech H.S.

"It’s given me so much knowledge about things I never knew about. I think everyone should know about these things for their future. I also have met so many friends and it’s a great place to meet new people and to talk about important things but also bond with people."


9th Grade Student, Wahconah H.S.

"In edgi everyone is really nice and we can bounce off of each other's ideas which keeps lots of ideas swirling around to think about. I think we all share a lot of opinions and ideas so it's nice to hear it from other people to see how they say what they think."


10th Grade Student, Lenox Memorial HS

"I love that in edgi, we are engaging in deep analytical conversations about our futures. There are no lectures, so we are the ones leading these conversations building what we know and what we don’t. I feel so immersed in these discussions."


10th Grade Student, LaGuardia H.S.

"I was under the impression remote learning simply didn’t work, but edgi proved that to be wrong. I joined with the intent to explore remote learning and see if it was really possible and ended it with a discussion about the truth and reality of our world."
