In this conversation, Aaron Walker, Founder and CEO of Camelback Ventures, and Afi Tengue, VP of Philanthropy and Impact at Giving Compass, examine and debunk the myths that plague the social sector and prevent donors from advancing systems change.
Aaron Walker is Founder and CEO of Camelback Ventures which works to identify, develop, and promote early-stage untapped entrepreneurs with an aim to improve education and eventually close the generational wealth gap. Aaron is on a journey to live in the spirit of his baseball hero, Jackie Robinson, who said “a life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” With this ethos, Aaron taught ninth grade English in West Philadelphia, put together deals for companies large and small as a lawyer, and supported new ideas to improve education as a portfolio director for the NYC Fund for Public Schools. Aaron is humbled to say that he graduated from the University of Virginia and Penn Law School.
