Sanergy is an MIT spinout that produces fertilizer and other agricultural bi-products through providing safe, affordable sanitation in Africa. After winning the famous MIT $100K business plan competition, the co-founders of Sanergy relocated to Nairobi, Kenya to build the venture. Over the last several years the team has attracted a combination of prize, grant, equity, and debt funding for the scale-up of the Sanergy innovation. They look forward to sharing their insights with you.

Lindsay holds an MBA from MIT Sloan, where she was a Seibel Scholar and President of MIT Sloan Net Impact, and a BA from Yale University, where she graduated with Phi Beta Kappa honors.
