Originally from Boston, Sarah Pomeranz is a recent alumna of Rutgers University, where she graduated summa cum laude as an Honors College Scholar with a BS in global business, entrepreneurship, and social justice. She is the co-founder of Sulis, a social venture which develops solar-water cleaning technology for communities in India. Sarah led Sulis to the finals of the $1 million Hult Prize Accelerator, spearheaded a crowdfunding campaign to pilot the teams’ technology, and was recently named one of 2019’s Top 3 American student entrepreneurs by Entrepreneur Organization. Sarah has traveled to over 30 countries and is most proud of the Ted Talk she delivered this past winter entitled, “How Not To Ruin the World with Your Good Intentions.” Sarah believes firmly in business as a vehicle for social change and will be moving to Washington D.C. to begin working as an Accenture Strategy Consultant in the fall.
