We are delighted to share our member spotlight for July - Steven McDonnough! Steven is a Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP) with more than 15 years of experience in financial planning and international business management. In addition, he is the co-founder of ProFarms Gateway, a US-based international trade and project development company with clients ranging from U.S. government contractors to emerging market developers seeking off-grid infrastructure (renewable energy/water) solutions.

Mr. McDonnough holds a B.A. and Advanced Certificate in Financial Planning from Virginia Commonwealth University. Since 2013, Steven has witnessed the scale of Ghana’s technology and development gap, inspiring his dream to facilitate rural development by bridging the knowledge gap between the U.S. and Africa. Steven is a sustainability enthusiast developing eco-communities throughout the Ashanti region of Ghana.

When asked, Brother Steven shared, his breadth of experience provided the perspective required to lead rural socio-economic development, rooted in regenerative agriculture, and to create a scalable model for Sub-Saharan Africa. He is currently our Sustainable Agriculture Industry House leader and can connect you to other members doing solid work as it relates to feeding our communities and building the infrastructure necessary to stand us up. When we head to Ghana in 2025, we will stop by the development his team is building.

Gratitude Steven for all of your contributions to the agriculture and community development field! We are grateful to spotlight you this month and encourage others to connect with Brother Steven for off-grid infrastructure solutions in the US and West Africa.
