Christensen Institute

Efosa Ojomo leads the Global Prosperity research group at the Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, a think tank based in Boston and Silicon Valley and is a senior research fellow at the Harvard Business School. His work focuses on understanding how best to create prosperity in low- and middle-income countries. 

The pillars of his research include understanding why poor countries have remained poor despite the trillions of dollars spent on development over the past several decades; analyzing a country’s capabilities to help it better predict the viability of projects; and helping investors, entrepreneurs, and development professionals improve their project success rates. 

In January 2019, Efosa and Harvard Business School professor, Clayton Christensen published “The Prosperity Paradox: How Innovation Can Lift Nations Out of Poverty”. Efosa speaks regularly on innovation and has presented his work at TED, the Aspen Ideas Festival, the World Bank, Harvard, Yale, Oxford and at several other conferences and institutions.
