SIPA alumni are working across the globe solving deeply entrenched problems in education, financial services, health, development, energy and the environment, and for those without access to resources, the disabled and refugees. What they have in common is a passion for their work, deep empathy for those they are solving problems for and the grit and determination to make things happen.  Meet a few of our amazing entrepreneurs changing the world one venture at a time.
