Students are entering a world defined by exponential technological progress and rapid socio-political change. Edgi empowers students to grapple with these transformations and prepares them for an uncertain future.

Josh teaches several courses on creativity, technology, and the future of work at New York University. Josh also worked on Andrew Yang’s presidential campaign where he got an inside view on how technology is changing the lives of millions of Americans.
Edgi programs are focused on content that is not taught in school but is relevant to our lives. Students learn about topics like artificial intelligence and modern-day capitalism.
Community is at the heart of the edgi experience. Discussion sessions are led by students trained in active listening, community-building, confidence, and vulnerability.
Edgi programs are specifically designed to help students develop the skills they need to succeed today, like communication, critical thinking, curiosity, and open-mindedness.
