Impact Philosophy

I'm excited about releasing market-based solutions to combat human trafficking and economic opportunities for the poor. I believe there are huge opportunities for impact in supply chain transparency and financial transparency to combat trafficking. I also see huge opportunities in up-skilling the economically poor, and for-profit pathways out of poverty.
