Edu Lyra

Edu Lyra, 31, was born in the favela where he lived in a shack and slept in a bathtub. His father, involved in crime in the favela, was arrested. His mother was his inspiration, and always told him: “It doesn´t matter where you come from, but where you go.” Edu believed it. He enrolled in university studies with a focus on journalism and at the age of 23, he wrote his first book Young Falcons. With a team of 50 young people, they sold books door-to-door in the periphery and slums.

Leveraging the profits from the book sales, he founded an NGO: Gerando Falcons, along with three co-founder friends including Mayara, who he would later marry and build a family. During this period, they obtained their first investment, donated by the couple Patrícia and Ricardo Villela Marino, who are advisors, even today.

Together with the team, Edu transitioned Gerando Falcons from being an NGO in the favela to a network of NGOs, leaving an impact on 50,000 people. The NGO focused on management efficiency, technology use and leadership training. He developed the ability to raise funds and mobilize hundreds of citizens as donors, as well as giant companies, like Motorola, Visa, Accenture and leading leaders such as Jorge Paulo Lemann, Elie Horn, Flavio Augusto da Silva, Charles Wizard, among others.

Edu has lectured in Brazil and abroad for companies such as Google and Microsoft. He has also been invited to speak at Harvard and the London School of Economics.

He was named one of the young Brazilians who can change the world and was among the most influential young people named by Forbes Brazil and “Man of the Year” by GQ magazine.

Edu’s father left his life in crime and returned home. Edu’s dream is that one day the slum’s poverty will end up in a museum.
