Head of Strategy and Operations
Eric Olson is Head of Strategy and Operations for Future Finance; a student lender solving for the growing funding gap in the UK. The move to Future Finance – and back to the financial world – is a move home for Eric who started investing in stocks at the age of 13 and dreamed of one day running a mutual fund in his home town of Boston. Now a tenured Chicagoan, Eric was the co-founder and co-operator of successful Chicago tech networking event series TECH cocktail from 2006 – 2010 and has also been venture investor at both DFJ and Origin Ventures.
Eric is a graduate of the University of Chicago Booth School of Business where he continued his study of financial markets. He lives in Oak Park with his wife, son and dog and, when not working and spending time with family, Eric can be found on his road bike or playing hockey at one of the many rinks in Chicagoland.
