Kristin Van Busum - Founder & CEO of Project Alianza
Kristin is founder & CEO of Project Alianza, a woman-led social enterprise that provides education for children living on remote coffee farms in Latin America. She is a TEDx and keynote speaker, Fulbright Scholar and MassChallenge winner. Prior to founding Project Alianza, she spent most her time (including weekends and holidays) writing policy briefs and congressional reports at The RAND Corporation, a global policy think tank. She grew up in Indiana (where she didn’t really fit in), studied in New York City (where she worked hard and partied harder), vagabonded around Spain (as an English teacher to learn Spanish), lived in Mexico (to assist families at the border), and founded her company in the middle-of-nowhere Nicaragua. Having traveled to over 40 countries, she landed back in Boston in 2018 because it’s walkable, sporty, innovative, inspiring, and most importantly, it feels like home.
