Becky Straw, co-founder and CEO of The Adventure Project

Wednesday, August 30 – Noon (Sturgis Hall)

Straw is the co-founder and CEO of The Adventure Project, a nonprofit creating jobs in developing countries. Instead of giving money and products away, The Adventure Project works somewhat like a venture capital firm for effective nonprofits: funding entrepreneurial activity that will both provide jobs and help in the four most needed areas – water, hunger, health, and environment. The 10-year goal of the organization is to create one million jobs worldwide. Prior to The Adventure Project, Becky spent three years helping to launch Charity: Water, an organization bringing drinking water to people in developing countries.
