Social Entrepreneur Josh Tetrick

Josh Tetrick, a social entrepreneur, writer, and speaker, has led a United Nations business initiative in Kenya, worked for both former President Clinton and the president of Liberia, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, and taught street children as a Fulbright Scholar in Nigeria and South Africa.

After earning defensive rookie of the year as a linebacker with West Virginia University, Tetrick applied his energy on the field to solving big problems off the field. Whether mobilizing the UN Global Compact in Kenya, leading a sustainable supply-chain initiative with Citigroup or leading the development of McGuireWoods LLP's global climate change strategy, Tetrick is committed to finding fresh solutions to old problems. Most recently, he led the reform of Liberia's investment laws while working in the office of the President of Liberia.

Presently he is the founder and CEO of 33needs, an investment platform that connects social entrepreneurs to crowd-sourced investment capital.

Josh Tetrick, a Fulbright Scholar, is a graduate of the University of Michigan Law School and Cornell University.
