Title and Organization:
Norman Beaulieu is an entrepreneur dedicated to building regenerative, systems-based solutions at the confluence of business, technology and the social sector. Norman is the founder and former managing director of Aedi Group, a family of companies delivering solutions in sustainable community development, renewable energy, and health and wellness. Part of these solutions is based upon a qualitative reasoning technology Norman co-created for research, development, and diagnosis purposes, and part is based on the transformation of an existing U.S. town into a sustainable, carbon-neutral community. Working in similar sectors yet with communities in developing countries is Village Corps, a company Norman founded and leads to help villagers create "regenerative prosperity" on their own. He remains actively involved with his alma mater, Wesleyan University, and various other volunteer initiatives. Norman's life joy is being with his wife, daughter and son with whom he lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He is a Fellow of the fourth class of the Africa Leadership Initiative-South Africa and a member of the Aspen Global Leadership Network.
