StartSomeGood FIRESIDE CHAT: Vahid Fotuhi, Founder & CEO of Blue Forest

20 September 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


StartSomeGood Fireside Chats share the inspiring and insightful stories of social entrepreneurs who have paved their paths and hustled for good. Their stories often highlight the ebbs and flows of their own social entrepreneurship journey, and through authentic, honest and genuine storytelling, provide a window into how others can travel their own entrepreneurship path.

We invite you to join us for a Fireside Chat with our special guest, Vahid Fotuhi, Founder & CEO of Blue Forest.

Vahid Fotuhi is a distinguished social entrepreneur and environmental leader hailing from Dubai. As Founder and CEO of Blue Forest, an acclaimed project developer specializing in mangrove forest restoration financed through Voluntary Carbon Markets, Vahid has demonstrated a profound commitment to environmental conservation.

Previously, Vahid served as Vice President for the Middle East and Africa at SOURCE Global, a solar-powered water technology firm backed by luminaries like Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos. Additionally, his role as Managing Director at Access Power involved spearheading the origination, development, and financing of solar and wind power projects across 12 countries, providing clean energy worth over $600 million to millions of people.

With a remarkable 25-year track record in nature-based project development, Vahid has also showcased his passion for community impact by founding three initiatives: Impact Adventures, the Middle East Solar Industry Association (MESIA), and Fathers And Kids Camping.

Join this session to tap into Vahid’s wealth of knowledge and learn from his vast experience in driving positive change for the planet and communities. His Master’s degree in International Relations from Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) and Bachelor’s degree from McGill University add further weight to his expertise. Furthermore, in 2018, he authored the compelling book, “African Perspectives,” further showcasing his commitment to making a difference.
