Institutional Strategist, ITI
While studying Plant Biology and researching Bio-hydrogen production at UC Berkeley, Gorav developed a keen interest in agroecology and sustainable development. He took this interest out into the world, working on projects in the USA, Honduras, India, Costa Rica, and the Bahamas. In a hiatus from overseas work, he completed his MBA in International Business under the Millennium Fellowship from the George Washington University in 2004. Gorav comes to ITI after helping to transform the programs and operations of Trees for the Future, a rapidly-growing nonprofit organization, through decentralization, transparency, and cloud technology. Gorav will be working with teams across the organization to maximize the efficiency and productivity of Ashoka’s Salesforce implementation. Interesting fact: Gorav is an expedition sea kayaker. He has kayaked all 1,000-odd miles of Baja California, and has also circumnavigated the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas.
