Tuesday, August 20, 2019

begin quote“Every time I traveled out of Africa, people would talk about safaris or Ebola or poachers chasing elephants. But what I saw were entrepreneurs chasing their dreams. I felt a need to transform the way people look at the continent.”


Kroc School alumnus Momo Bertrand '19 (MA) appears on the cover of the Fall 2019 edition of USD Magazine. The article about him entitled, "The Power of Stories: Momo Bertrand Is Changing the Narrative" highlights Bertrand's unique path to the Kroc School and digs into how the Kroc School's Master's in Social Innovation program helped him achieve his goal of shifting perceptions of his home continent of Africa to one of "entrepreneurs chasing their dreams".
