It all started with a conversation.
After graduating from Babson College, Aaron Shapiro moved to Connecticut, where he helped build a non-profit focused institutional investment firm as its first employee. During Aaron’s tenure, the firm’s AUM grew from $150 Million to $4 Billion.
While in Connecticut, a family member asked Aaron to help them find a way to save more money. He began to realize that most ESPPs allow employees to make thousands of dollars a year virtually risk-free. Yet, most employees don’t participate in their plan because they can’t afford to have more money deducted from their paycheck. The idea for Carver Edison was born.
Aaron soon ventured back to his hometown, New York City, to begin building a company that helps ordinary employees make more money.
We all have a role to play in the innovation we are driving. We must be responsible stewards of that role by being self-starters, independent thinkers and approaching complex matters with thoughtful resolve.
We are here for our customers. Without our customers our products have no purpose. Our customers should be top of mind, always. Commercial requirements help us deliver our products to our customers and we must respect the magnitude of our mission.
We are solving complex problems and we are doing things that haven't ever been done before, we must remember that, especially when the answer doesn’t seem obvious, we must persist in our search for a solution. There is always a responsible and ethical solution that will work.
Make Carver Edison a company you're proud of. Create an inclusive environment, go the extra mile, ask the hard questions and always be willing to roll up your sleeves.
Contributing 200% is in our DNA. Our specific path is one which has never been chartered and we must remember that old ways of doing things may not be applicable in our current day-to-day. Getting to where we are going requires a deep intellectual curiosity and a focused commitment.
Our customers bet the livelihood's of their team members on us. We must be able to fully commit ourselves to our work and bet on each other to make sure we always deliver world class results. Communicate clearly, be kind and work hard.
