Jay “The Instigator” Sears – New York – Founder
Bio: Jay has worked at Mastercard, Rubicon Project, Pulsepoint, ContextWeb, EDGAR Online and Wolff New Media.
Why: In 1988, I was visiting a World Wildlife Fund development project in the remote Annapurna mountains in Nepal. Hearing I was from the USA and assuming I was some sort of envoy, the principal from the local school asked if I could send help. As a student, I was floored and humbled by the request. Thirty years later, I’m excited Team Dayā will make a small contribution by building its first primary school in Nepal. I hope we will inspire others to take action to benefit others.
