I have been working on economic development all my professional life as a way to improve the world we live in. First from the top down, at the World Bank. Now from academia (Harvard Kennedy School and MIT) and from the base of the pyramid looking to scale up innovations.
I work through IMAGO Global Grassroots to help outstanding grassroots and social entrepreneurs co-create the preconditions for scaling up and help community based social enterprises prepare to absorb the resources needed to grow exponentially. My dream is that one day there will be many more organizations like IMAGO, working hand in hand with the amazing organizations around the world so they can reach their unique potential, become sustainable and change the way we think about development.
