Eric Horvath

Director of Capital Strategies

About Eric

Eric is primarily driven by a single, fundamental question: how do we transform how power and resources are shared in our economy, while truly centering the brilliance and bravery of those who have been systematically excluded?

At Common Future, Eric leads the organization’s work in designing and developing innovative capital products for BIPOC, with an emphasis on creating more just terms, structures, and impacts. He collaborates closely with network leaders and partners across the country to reimagine and restructure the equitable economy we all deserve.

Before joining Common Future, Eric worked at Transform Finance, where he launched several initiatives that collaborated with activists, organizers and other social sector allies across the country to explore paths for their communities to harness and reclaim capital. He has also worked in philanthropy, where he supported the Woodcock Foundation’s grantmaking and impact investing efforts. Through his time at the foundation, he helped steward several millions of dollars in grants and program-related investments.

Outside of work, he is deeply engaged in progressive local politics and mentoring youth of color. A former Fulbright ETA, Eric earned his MPA from the Maxwell School at Syracuse University and is currently pursuing an MBA from the Stern School of Business at NYU. He calls Brooklyn home.
