Ash: Our mission is to attract and develop an army of innovators and solve problems at every stage of their journey, and ensure equitable quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all. We achieve this mission by enabling the most seasoned and supportive leaders of the education and workforce industry to share their insight and mentorship with every education innovator—entrepreneurs, investors, educators, professionals, researchers, policy-makers, students, foundations, corporations, governments, and talent.
Sharia: I am trying to build more partnerships between investors, non-profits, schools and startups across developing countries so that those local entrepreneurs can thrive and build their communities. For example, one of my recent in-the-works partnerships is between a non-profit, a school system based in Haiti, and a solar wind company. The goal is to bring solar wind energy into developing countries so that students can have access to the internet. With access to the internet comes information and with information comes ideas—so future entrepreneurs can give back to their country.
Pulkit: Illumina Africa’s mission is to provide sustainable energy and water infrastructure to every single individual on our planet and the wider universe. Currently, we build, own, and operate, solar photovoltaic power plants and provide low-cost sustainable electricity to industries, offices, residential and off-grid individuals.
