Organized by the University of St Thomas School of Engineering and the Yale Alumni Association of the Northwest

Constellation Fund Founder & Chief Executive Officer Andrew Dayton is a social entrepreneur with a passion for community development and social equity.

Andrews passion for public policy led him to serve as the Deputy Legislative Director to former San Fransisco Mayor Edwin M. Lee. But, his concern over growing inequities in Minnesota brought him home. Andrew recently launched the Constellation Fund, a grant making organization inspired by New York's Robin Hood Foundation that uses data, research, and analytics to identify, fund, and partner with the people and organizations making the biggest demonstrable impacts in the fight against poverty in the Twin Cities.

Andrew is also the co-founder and co-owner of North Corp, the umbrella company behind the transformation of a 130-year-old warehouse in Minneapolis, Minnesota into three award-winning businesses-a restaurant, craft cocktail bar, and men's clothing store-that collectively employ nearly 100 people.

Andrew earned his law degree from University of Michigan and a B.A. from Yale University. He sits on the boards of The Minneapolis Foundation and Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors.
