Yoseph is one of the co-founders of the Edmund Hillary Fellowship and was the first CEO as well.  In this interview we talk about his childhood in Ethiopia, moving around Africa as a young person, studying in the United States and how he ended up in New Zealand. We also talk about the origins of the Edmund Hillary Fellowship and the programme which brings into New Zealand entrepreneurs and investors on Global Impact Visas and now has 532 Fellows.  I really enjoyed this interview and appreciated hearing more about Yoseph's background and life - if you like it too then check out for a lot more interviews as well.
