Last night I got a chance to spend a couple of hours with Mike Murray – who is an ex-VP from Microsoft and a good friend. Over the last several years Mike has co-founded and is the Chairman of the Board for Unitus – a non-profit organization that is focused on innovative ways to solve global poverty.
It was fascinating to see how this organization has evolved in the last several years to work with MFIs (Micro Finance Institutions) in different parts of the world and help make a difference to hundreds of thousands of people and families.
In the decade or so since I have known Mike, I have known him to be super passionate about his work – that was true when I knew him at Microsoft. I am glad to see him take that passion and apply to a social cause very effectively.
I wish Mike and the team at Unitus all the very best and success in their journey.
