I am the Founder and Executive Director of ENVenture, an award-winning incubator that finances and trains rural cooperatives in Uganda to start clean energy businesses. I'm also the Founder of ENVision mobile, enterprise software for financially excluded microentrepreneurs. I have over 10 years of experience working in 15 countries in Africa and Asia on last mile technology adoption, focusing on clean energy entrepreneurship and fintech. Formerly, I worked at Facebook on their Sustainability and Connectivity Lab, prototyping new social impact technologies. Previously, I served as an Energy Access Officer at the United Nations Foundation, spearheading grassroots entrepreneur mobilization for the UN Sustainable Energy for All Initiative. I'm honored to have been recognized for my contributions as Renewable Energy World’s Top 40 under 40 in solar, winner of the Vodafone Wireless Innovation Prize, an American Express Emerging Innovator, Wild Gift Fellow, member of Forbes Nonprofit Council, Unilever Young Entrepreneur Finalist, MIT Solve Finalist, and recipient of the Global Social Benefit Incubator. I have a Masters in Environment & Development from the London School of Economics and a Bachelors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
