Eric Harr is the CEO of Stand, reporting to a 10-year-old boss.
Stand was inspired by his then 8-year-old daughter Vivienne, who “made a stand” against child slavery for 365 days in a row at her lemonade stand. The moment became a moment, featured on CBS News, ABC News, NBC News, BBC World News, The Huffington Post, and other media.
Earlier this fall, Stand proudly unveiled the very first “stand” on their new mobile-first crowdfunding app, created with the help of an amazing team of investors, including Twitter cofounders Biz Stone and Jack Dorsey.
Harr is a former CBS News correspondent, writer for Shape magazine, and syndicated columnist with the Los Angeles Times. He is the founding editorial director of VIV magazine, the first women’s mass-market digital magazine. Harr was also a professional triathlete—ranked sixth in the world in his first year—raising money for humanitarian causes.
