When I was 18, I worked as a teacher in a rural Muslim school in the mountains of Tanzania. I learned that most people have similar goals and aspirations; their contexts just vary wildly. This experience helped me focus on social impact, and inspired me to found OpenIDEO. Today, I’m passionate about making investments where technology can be applied in human-centered ways to make a difference in both the developing and developed worlds.
