Auerbach founded Sanergy with two classmates while a student at MIT Sloan. The company tackles multiple sustainability challenges at the same time, training franchisees in Nairobi’s urban slums to collect sanitation waste, which is then processed into fertilizer and later sold to local farmers. Sanergy is poised to expand to other countries in the developing world, addressing the urban sanitation problem that threatens the health of more than a billion people.
