Kevin Starr

Managing Director, Mulago Foundation and the Rainer Arnhold Fellows Program

Kevin Starr, one of the foremost thought leaders in the social entrepreneurship sector, directs the Mulago Foundation and the Rainer Arnhold Fellows Program, both of which are focused on scalable solutions to meet the basic needs of the very poor. Kevin established the Rainer Arnhold Fellows Program in 2003 to apply Mulago's principles and tools to help social entrepreneurs turn good ideas into lasting change at scale. The program gives fellows a chance to design for impact that can go big. Kevin teaches and mentors fellows in numerous other programs for social entrepreneurs and serves as the chairman of Big Bang Philanthropy, a group of funders working together to direct more money to those best at fighting poverty. Kevin went through medical school and residency at UC San Francisco and has lived in San Francisco ever since.
