Burns and Alsaid, are both nonprofit CEOs leading First Trip and the Alsaid Foundation respectively. The two met at the university, while taking a graduate consultancy course. The two leaders decided to work together when their class was assigned a project that allowed students to break into teams and put the lessons they learned in the course into practical business applications. Their collaboration led to a lasting friendship as the two continue to lend advice to one another as they pursue their passions for giving back through their nonprofit work.
