IPED Spring 2021 Lecture Series: Acceso with Eric Carroll

February 24 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

What are the usual bottlenecks and problems of rural farmers and fisherfolk endure in the supply chain? How can a non-profit aid in alleviating these issues? And how has Covid-19 affected rural farmers and fisherfolk? We are pleased to welcome Eric Carroll as he will delve into answering these questions with his Acceso, a social business builder. Acceso builds, invests, and consults with many stakeholders in the agriculture and fisheries sectors in Latin America. Amongst other things, it acts as a conduit to connect rural farmers and fisherfolk to buyers, impact investors, and philanthropists. It currently has operations in Colombia, El Salvador, and Haiti. As for our speaker, he has been with the organization for almost four years now. He holds a BA from Boston College and an MA from Fordham University.

This event is free and will be a webinar via Zoom. To join, please register here or email ipedlectures@fordham.edu to receive the link.
