With a desire to help people help themselves, Martin Fisher co-founded and is CEO of Kickstart, an organization whose mission is to get millions of people out of poverty quickly, cost-effectively and sustainably.
Martin Fisher, an engineer, inventor and social entrepreneur, went to Kenya on a Fulbright Scholarship in the late 1980’s, and stayed there for 17 years, working in various social work organizations. Realizing that just like anyone, the number one need of poor families in Africa is "a way to make more money," Fisher, and his co-founder Nick Moon, developed a new model for fighting global poverty -Kickstart.
