As Head of the Strategic Initiatives Team, Jonathan Barnow oversees TechnoServe’s corporate partnerships. The team works with corporations in building the business case for initiatives that can both generate value for companies and take farmers and small business owners out of poverty.

I believe passionately in the ability of business solutions to address the challenge of global poverty. At TechnoServe, I see the real and measurable impact that can be delivered by effectively harnessing the investment of our corporate partners. The potential to further scale this in ways that create value for disadvantaged populations, as well as the corporations and their stakeholders, is vast.”
