Cameron Cross

My name is Cameron, I moved to Cape Town to work with an education start-up for three months after graduating before starting full-time work as a management consultant with Bain & Company. I spent two years at Bain before recently leaving to do a 6-month "externship" in South America: 3 months with an impact investing fund (Acumen) in Colombia, and 3 months with an Acumen investee in Peru (Wasi Organics). In January, I will return to Bain for 6 months before seeking a job that intersects my interests of education and social entrepreneurship. I am an avid runner and traveler. Would love to talk about either!

I love being able to make an impact on people through thoughtful and empathetic products.
