Hudson Baird is the Co-Founder of PelotonU and Executive Director. Hudson’s passion for economic opportunity began in a fast food kitchen where he spent college summers working alongside peers who held two jobs, loved their families, and rarely made it home for dinner. There was not a clear path to middle class employment, no matter how hard they worked. These people were justifiably frustrated, because the American Dream had failed them. A native of Austin and Vanderbilt University alumni, Hudson helped start two other social enterprises before PelotonU. An only child, Hudson is happiest fly fishing or mountaineering.
