About the Founder
Successful serial entrepreneur and inventor, Ed Silansky, came out of retirement with one goal in mind: to create a safer and happier future for the next generation. Driven by his love for his two millennial daughters and an unwavering desire to leave behind a legacy that made a difference in communities everywhere, Ed created the idea for 1TRYBE. Once the framework was finished, he knew that he had to test the 1TRYBE vision with his intended audience, so he interviewed nearly 100 millennials from all walks of life and found that the idea was embraced by all. In July 2018, the vision became a reality, as Ed filed a patent for this AI-driven movement that is positioned to empower the next great generation. Today, the company is being guided by the 1TRYBE Council – more than a dozen millennials nationwide that are the driving force behind this movement, ensuring 1TRYBE is built by millennials, for millennials from the ground up. 1TRYBE will always be a project run and led by the younger generations it was designed for, as a way to equip the next leaders of this country and ensure they take ownership and find meaning in the world around them.
