Kenichi joined GreenLight Fund in August 2019, having had the privilege to serve vibrant communities in Bosnia, Haiti, the U.S., and Somaliland/Somalia as an educator and project manager.

Most recently as a graduate student, Kenichi applied his passion for education, data, and finance by designing a market entry strategy for an edtech nonprofit and a digital product strategy for Scholastic Inc.

Kenichi holds a B.A. in International Relations from Tufts University, and an M.A. in Business for Social Impact and Finance from The Fletcher School at Tufts University.
