Fletcher entrepreneurs on a roll
Blog readers recently learned about the winners of the 2022 Fletcher D-Prize, a poverty solutions entrepreneurial competition held annually by the Institute for Business in the Global Context. I’m pleased to be able to share some more good news in the same vein, namely the victory of current first-year students Ashira and Kimberly in the Tufts $100K New Ventures Competition. Their venture Active Heirs, awarded first place in the Social Impact Track of the competition, “empowers Black heirs’ property owners in the U.S. by strengthening family cohesion and by providing families with resources and partnerships to build generational wealth. As consultants and empowerment experts assigned to each family, we help them identify hurdles, cost-effective strategies, educational resources, planning, and implementation strategies.”
Keen-eyed readers might note that Ashira is also part of the D-Prize-winning team announced last week, which officially qualifies her for the status of Serial Entrepreneur. We’re extremely proud of all the recent success of our students. Congratulations, Ashira and Kimberly!
