About Hamse Warfa

Hamse Warfa works at the intersection of community building, philanthropy and social entrepreneurship for over the past 20 years. He is deeply passionate about rewriting and changing the social and economic ‘rules’ and systems that marginalize and exclude people from opportunities to live their lives with dignity.

Hamse is the co-founder and Executive Vice President of BanQu, an MIT Innovation award winner, software technology company working to eradicate poverty by connecting the unbanked to the global economy through a secure, portable digital economic identity that allows economically marginalized people including refugees and the displaced to access markets and financing opportunities. BanQu was recognized by the Obama administration as a leader in its field and invited it to the 2016 White House Leaders’ Summit on Refugees.

Prior to launching his social enterprises, Hamse served as a Senior Program Officer with Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies managing the foundation’s global and domestic children, families and health grants. Previously, Hamse served as a Senior Program Officer managing a diverse portfolio of grants at Alliance Healthcare Foundation, a San Diego-based foundation working to improve access to health& healthcare for underserved communities.

In 2008, Hamse founded  Institute for Horn of Africa Studies and Affairs (IHASA), an organization that utilizes research and advocacy as a strategy to reduce the persistent violence in the Horn of Africa region while providing accurate information on the socio-economic and political situation of the region and the African Diaspora.

Hamse’s leadership work has been recognized locally and globally through leadership awards and as a sought-after speaker and trainer. In 2016, Hamse was named as a  Bush Foundation Leadership Fellow based on his record of achievement and extraordinary potential to make significant contributions in reducing the opportunity gap. In 2017, Hamse was the recipient of Lutheran Social Services’ Movement of Hope and Vision Award as well as the 2017 recipient of Minnesota State-wide Facing Race Award for his racial equity work.
