When Stern alumnus, Samir Ibrahim (BS ’11), packed his bags for Kenya soon after graduation to run his start-up company SunCulture, which sells solar-powered irrigation products and agricultural services to local farmers, he was actually fulfilling a lifelong dream. “My original plan was to transition from real estate finance to infrastructure investment, and then use those skills to move into development. When my friend and co-founder Charlie Nichols approached me with the idea for SunCulture, I realized I could skip a few steps and move into development right away. It’s never too soon to start pursuing your ultimate goals.”
