Madison Campbell is a serial entrepreneur, venture capital investor, and astroepidemiologist.
She started her first successful company at the age of sixteen by employing her parents and creating a pipeline for actuarial work, information technology, and marketing strategy.
After selling that company to her parents, her adventurous spirit took her on a trip around the globe to better understand the economic disparities and increase her compassion for the struggles of other cultures. This compassion has stood the test of time, and inspired her latest startup: Iyanu.
Iyanu looks to build infrastructure and a sustainable pipeline for growing the African economy in the realm of digital marketing and strategy. Iyanu is the first of many companies Campbell plans to invest in through her venture capital incubator Madison Avenue Equity, which funds ideas within the bounds of blockchain, application development, real estate technology and artificial intelligence.
Campbell is also passionate about increasing awareness of common public health treatments and precautions, which compelled her to enroll at Hampshire College and study Epidemiology and Mathematical Modeling. A natural leader, she took many leaps to serve in leadership positions, internships, and entrepreneurial pursuits along the way within the bounds of STEM. She continued her studies through the Master’s program at UMass Amherst and the Epidemiology department at the University of Edinburgh.
She incorporated her passion for STEM with Space Medicine, where she took her skills in Epidemiology and has since created the science of “Astroepidemiology”. She spoke on this subject during a TedxTalk in New York, and continues to be an advocate for space travel.
Through both acting as a startup entrepreneur and VC, she aims to be able to develop the strategic business growth algorithm with both sets of values—versus one.
