From rural Uganda to global impact: Changing the world one life at a time

Sometimes all it takes is someone to believe in your vision and solution. That was true for Christopher Ategeka, and now he's created a platform to help entrepreneurs around the world with Hourglass Ventures. The company allows Americans to invest small amounts of money into many startups on the African continent. 

"Talent is universal, and opportunities are really not," said Ategeka.

He describes his own experience of coming into opportunity, from extreme poverty in rural Uganda to graduating with a masters degree in mechanical engineering from UC Berkeley to creating life-changing companies.
