Building a Network across West Africa

Tim Sullivan ’16 and Eric Lockhart YC ’07, ’16 have seen the potential for growth in some of the world’s most troubled areas. Before coming to Yale SOM, Sullivan worked in Afghanistan to help the war-torn country’s citizens fight corruption, and Lockhart worked with the International Rescue Committee to help refugees rebuild their lives. Both wanted to find a way to leverage their SOM experience to use private enterprise for social good in some of the world’s poorest places.
