In January 2014, he co-founded and launched T3 Omni, a firm focused on emerging market impact investments. He led projects such as working with a Mynamarbased private equity firm to provide economic opportunities for refugees, consulting with a Nigerian oil company on incorporating improved environmental policies, and consulting with a Chinese primary school system on governance enhancements. He completed his MBA from Emory University in 2015 while working full-time.
In addition, Adam has served as a chairman for a non-profit organization with a nearly $1 MM annual budget, where he led seven committee members in making charity allocation decisions and helped support and evaluate nearly 100 Atlanta-based and global non-profit organizations. In 2016, he was asked to be a Board of Directors member of Sustainable Liberia, a non-government organization that focuses on making a positive impact in Liberia, West Africa.
