Josh Tetrick

CEO & Founder, Hampton Creek

Josh Tetrick -- a social entrepreneur, writer, and speaker -- has led a United Nations business initiative in Kenya, worked for both former President Clinton and the president of Liberia, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, and taught street children as a Fulbright Scholar in Nigeria and South Africa

After earning defensive rookie of the year as a linebacker with West Virginia University, Josh applied his energy on the field to pursuing a career for good off the field.

Whether advising and investing in sustainable business models with the UN in Kenya; leading a sustainable supply-chain initiative with Citigroup; or founding a company to connect good companies with funding, Josh is committed to helping organizations find profit through purpose.

Through hundreds of events across the country, Josh has used his diverse experiences to help young people understand – and act on - the map of opportunities to do good and well at the same time.

His on-the-ground experience leading the reform of Liberia's investment laws brought him into contact with hundreds of creative entrepreneurs with big ideas, but little capital. Josh is aiming to solve this problem, as the founder and CEO of 33needs, an investment platform that connects social entrepreneurs to micro-investments.

Josh, a Fulbright Scholar, is a graduate of the University of Michigan Law School and Cornell University.
