Our founder, Joshua Marshman spent 4 years studying aerospace engineering with a speciality in systems engineering and optimization and project management. Upon graduating, the NASA administration took a big budget cut, and thus the aerospace industry wasn’t hiring anyone. He saw this as an opportunity to travel and serve the least of these around the world. He spent 2 months in the poor barrios of Nicaragua to realize that he wanted to make a lifestyle out of helping people. After spending the next 4 years traveling the world and helping a number of nonprofits, Joshua returned to home to South East, USA to create 5050Projects so he could help support a worldwide solution.

Meet Joshua Marshman, Founder of 5050Projects. At the age of 26 he met with Valarie who was sharing profits 50/50 to help with clean water organizations with money she made from water she had bottled in the mountains of North Carolina. After a brief lunch, Joshua pitched the idea to build this model out across other platforms including healthcare, housing, and education. After a several months, Valarie decided to focus more on her family and supported Joshua to fully launch the company called 5050 Projects.
Joshua has been privileged to travel the world through missionary work and seen many of the beautiful places around the world during his time of service. He has also seen much of the brokenness and need. Even from a young age, Joshua wanted to do something to help and encourage people out of need and into a fulfilling relationship with Christ. With a degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and a speciality in System Engineering and Project Management, Joshua's mission is to assemble an organization that helps others achieve their goals.
