Igniting Creativity

Toshi Nakamura | TEDxTokyo 2011

You can think of Toshi Nakamura’s NGO, Kopernik, as an online marketplace offering low tech with a higher purpose. Since 2009, Kopernik—a member of the Clinton Global Initiative—has delivered simple yet life-changing technologies like the Q-Drum rolling water transport and clean cookstoves to nearly a dozen developing nations, transforming the lives of the poorest of the poor.

Toshi got plenty of experience dealing with governance reform, peace processes and post-disaster reconstruction—including the tsunami in Aceh and the Yogyakarta earthquake—during a decade-long career at the United Nations. A management consultant for McKinsey and Company in Tokyo prior to joining the UN, Toshi has a law degree from Kyoto University and a master’s degree in comparative politics from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
