Today’s interview is with Gret Glyer. Gret spent 3 years living in Malawi, Africa doing poverty alleviation work. This included building houses for orphans and widows, providing mosquito nets to malaria infested areas, and crowdfunding a $100,000 girls school in a rural village. Last September he moved home to launch his startup: DonorSee. DonorSee is an app that helps donors see exactly where there money goes when they donate using picture and video updates.

In our interview, Gret talk about:

  • The conditions in Malawi that inspired Gret to start a poverty elimination app.
  • Why traveling to a 3rd world country or launching an app is like taking a leap of faith.
  • How donation campaigns have been run for ever and why they are so inefficient.
