Ed Emanuelli was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. From a young age he’s been involved in all sorts of start ups and ventures, the first being a surf company which still exist today, then several young minded ideas like a female talent agency, a tour guide company and a food truck / van way back before food trucks were in. Nowadays, after a few successful exits and a few bumps on the road, Ed is leading the charge with a homegrown angel investment group based out of Puerto Rico and trying to play a key role in helping the entrepreneurship ecosystem grow locally in a manner that P.R. can become a center for Caribbean, Central and Latin American innovation and investment.

Regarding the technicalities, Ed is a licensed state and federal attorney with an L.L.M from Pepperdine University in Negotiation. His interest in the food space came at a young age due to the fact that his family operates one of only two milk manufacturers and distributors in Puerto Rico, amidst other beverages and bi-products that are part of their brand. They are currently celebrating 95 years since inception.

Ed’s “other” job is working as Vice President and Sales Leader for Hub international Insurance Brokers. Hub is the 10th largest insurance broker in the world. Ed’s local firm used to be the largest local capital firm in Puerto Rico when HUB made an approach to buy the business and have Ed’s team help them lead the charge for a Caribbean and Central American expansion. HUB handles a lot of business in the New York region with corporate offices in the heart of the city, including a startup practice which Ed is focusing on here in NYC.
