Obed Eugene

Obed Eugene is the Founder and CEO of Urbanfunder, a Crowdfunding platform that caters to the minority community. Obed has spent nearly a decade in finding ways to solve problems through the lens of an entrepreneur. During his freshman year at Howard University he founded Textbook Pals, a company that helped college students get affordable textbooks, sell books and donate books. Textbook Pals has also donated over 200 children’s books to an elementary school in Washington, DC. During his senior year at Howard he noticed the inefficiency of bus services while traveling between DC and NY, so he founded Collegebound, a bus company that offers bus travel for college students. Now he is on the quest to solve some of the disparities in the minority community by helping people get the funding they need with Urbanfunder.

We formed a Delaware corporation for Obed.
