As part of the Berkeley International Business Development program, I traveled with 3 teammates to Dar es Salaam for a month of research, interviews and learning. Our team was sponsored by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine as part of its Sanitation Ventures project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
