Subsequently, he held positions in private industry, and began advising VantagePoint in 2006. He has also served as a foreign policy advisor for John McCain during his current presidential bid.

Edwards is a former equity research analyst at Morgan Stanley, where he focused on cleantech. He also previously worked as a partner for Charles River Ventures.
