Abbas Sumar

It all starts somewhere.

In our case, Abbas wandered into sustainable development by happenstance.

A chance to serve as a legislative aide on Canada’s parliament hill emerged with an up-and-coming member of parliament focused of global education, development, and trade. From there, he pivoted to Sub-Saharan Africa to manage a transformational social impact project that would enable inclusive growth and cultivate entrepreneurship as the country transitioned to a knowledge economy.

The opportunity, while short on time was long on lessons and insights to guide the path forward.

From that point on, it’s been nothing less than an adventure, on different continents, cultivating partnerships, enabling sustainable growth, and making a lasting impact.
