Maliasili Initiatives

Big Idea: 

Maliasili Initiatives helps African organizations achieve better, faster conservation outcomes. They find high potential organizations and help them refine their strategy, hire great talent, and raise more money. Maliasili works with 15 of the best groups out there -- covering 20M hectares -- and makes them even better.

Fred has spent the last 20 years working on natural resource management and development in East Africa. 11 of those years were spent living and working in Tanzania. He earned his Bachelors from Cornell University and his Masters in Natural Resources at the University of Michigan.
