Sam Warach is a University Innovation Fellow and holds a Bachelor of Science dual degree from the University of New Hampshire (UNH), graduating in May 2017. Sam earned a dual degree in Business Administration: Finance, and International Affairs. At the end of his senior year, the UNH Peter T. Paul College of Business & Economics presented Sam with the 2016-2017 Distinguished Student "Paul Pride" award, in recognition of his research and community development contributions to the college. Sam placed 1st (of 73 teams) in the University of New Hampshire's 2017 "Innovation to Market" competition. Sam has had passion for entrepreneurship and innovation from a young age.

During his sophomore year at UNH in 2014, Sam cofounded UNH ICE, a student organization centered around cultivating innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship in the university and local communities. From its inception, UNH ICE has evolved into a widely recognized interdisciplinary student organization that has had a consistent membership and engagement of 100+ undergraduate and graduate student members per week. Elected as Chairman of the Board of the organization for the 2016-2017 school year, Sam gained experience through management of the executive team of the organization, design and leadership of workshops for members, and spearheading the discussion and exposure of innovation and entrepreneurship throughout the University community. The organization is a hub for educating students about how to pursue entrepreneurship and connecting students together where they can have a time to exercise their own think-tank sessions. UNH ICE also provides a network to connect students to local startups where they can find internship and employment opportunities.

Sam is currently working on projects for social innovation using his business, design, creative problem solving, community development, and web development skills he has acquired through work and school experiences. As a New Hampshire native, Sam has always been interested in the outdoors. Sam enjoys travelling as much as he can and heading to the coast for a surf in his free time.
