Computer Science and Economics

Lurein grew up in Malawi, the warm heart of Africa, before moving to the US for their undergrad degree at Boston College. They’ve spent the last 4 years building and running Givecard, a nonprofit that uses debit cards and its own financial infrastructure to power universal basic income and direct giving trials across the country, and have started and scaled a venture backed company. They’re currently really interested in microgrid energy systems and its applications in remote villages in Malawi.
