Pradeep Suthram
We worked together  •  Senior Consultant, VMware / Cognizant Business Consulting and Director of Technology (Pro-bono), Primate Education Network.
I have known Olivier for 10+ years now. He has the real-world experience, proven expertise, and genuine intent to see real change in the wo ... rld. He's a tech guy who actually writes code, has a law degree with experience establishing cross-border partnerships, and has accumulated unparalleled work experience for the President - all things that make him qualified for this venture and helps the social enterprise scale. I strongly recommend that anyone who shares his passion for his cause must join, advise, invest, or connect with him.
