I feel living in Birmingham is a real blessing for me. Many businesses here are very committed to a true triple-bottom line approach of people, place, and profit.

Social entrepreneurism is one of the main reasons that Eric Martin Scott chose to live in Birmingham, Alabama over other cities such as New Orleans or Austin, Texas.

After graduating with a Master of Liberal Arts in Management from Harvard University and graduating Cum Laude from the Southern University Law Center, he began seeking diverse communities on the cutting edge of social entrepreneurism and found Birmingham to be home. He has since been heavily involved in Birmingham’s technology community and has been building a successful client base from local entrepreneurs and growing businesses.
