D8A founder and Third Cohort partner Jon Gosier is one of 12 leaders in an emerging generation of black changemakers, according to a TIME list published Jan. 16.
Gosier comes in at number four, wedged between College Athletes Players Association president Ramogi Huma and the RNC’s Chief Data Officer Azarias Reda.

The excerpts for each leader are short and sweet, but TIME does highlight Gosier’s Open SIM Kit work with Abayima in Africa. This acknowledgement is the newest of many high-profile nods at Gosier and his work in the past few years.
