UCLA Anderson School of Management

Haskamp Fellowship

Heiko Haskamp
Heiko was a magna cum laude Dean's List graduate from Boston University with a degree in Electrical Engineering and spent the four years prior to Anderson with Hewlett Packard - first as a marketing engineer in West Germany then quickly promoted to Bristol, England to help lead the marketing effort for a European start-up division and then promoted again to be Product Manager with worldwide responsibility for HP's computer tape drive product line. Just before starting his degree at Anderson, he was sent on a special project to HP's Cupertino headquarters.

His death in a swimming accident at the beach at a Class of `88 party on July 4, 1987 reminds us of how fragile life can be since Heiko was no stranger to the water. In fact, he was a super athlete and represented Hong Kong on an international level in worldwide swimming and waterskiing competitions as well as in motocross. Heiko was born in 1960 and raised in Hong Kong to West German parents Walter and Ingrid and had one sister Andrea and a half-brother Michael. He was bilingual in English and German and was very aware and interested in the Asian culture in which he lived.

What do those who receive the Haskamp say?

Please extend my deepest thanks to the Haskamp fund and my classmates. Without their support I probably couldn't have helped as many animals through the summer and still supported myself." - Matt Davidson '05

"This summer I conducted policy and real estate analysis for Livable Places, a small non profit organization in downtown Los Angeles. Livable Places develops sustainable, transit-oriented affordable housing in Southern California, and works with local government and community organizations to promote healthy communities through policy reform. My main task was a feasibility study to determine possible levels of affordability given current land and construction costs in Los Angeles County. I presented my findings to the Board of Directors, and the results will be used to determine the strategic course of Livable Places as it matures. In addition, I wrote grants, did policy research, and constructed a framework for the strategic plan the organization will use to guide its expansion.

Thanks to the Haskamp Fund and my classmates, I had the opportunity to focus on a project that will improve the quality and supply of affordable housing in Southern California." - Amanda Gehrke '05

"This summer, I worked as a Policy Research Analyst for the Transportation and Land Use Coalition (TALC), a leading Bay Area nonprofit. My project, the Sustainable Transportation Funding Initiative, covered a range of topics, including the legislative process, transportation finance, environmental justice, and regional planning. I researched current transportation funding streams, vetted a broad range of alternatives for generating new transportation funding, and focused in on several promising options. The results of my analysis serve as the foundation for TALC's emerging effort to secure community and political support for a new regional transportation funding measure. This internship was made possible by the generous support of the Class of 2006, via their contributions to the Haskamp Fund." - Christine Safriet '05

"Over the summer, I worked for a group in Hyderabad, India known as BASIX. The organization's mission is to create sustainable livelihoods for the rural poor by providing both financial and technical assistance. For example, I focused on a project that was designed to revitalize the dairy industry at the state level (before scaling up to the national level). Over the course of eight weeks, I met with farmers and inspected operations - learning about the dairy industry from the ground up. Aside from gaining invaluable field experience, I was also exposed to the challenges that are inherent to collaborations with government agencies as well as other NGO's.

My summer experience was something that I'm eagerly looking forward to building upon. In fact, I am already in talks with BASIX management to explore a joint venture with them after graduation that would combine my agricultural background with my interests in social entrepreneurship.

Thanks to Haskamp and my classmates for the support. It was much appreciated as it afforded me an opportunity to do something that I might not have otherwise been able to do." - Ravi Sreerama '05

"This summer the Haskamp grant allowed me to work in Washington D.C. at the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). There I worked in the Global Development Alliance Secretariat (GDA) as a Public-Private Alliance Builder. As such, I developed, coordinated, and managed relationships between public and private institutions working on international development projects to fight poverty. I learned a great deal this summer, and I truly appreciate having had such an opportunity." - Genevieve Juillard '04

"Thank you so much for supporting my efforts this summer working with the Binti Pamoja program ("sisters united" in Swahili) in Nairobi, Kenya. Kenya is struggling to develop economically; however, the country is teeming with bright, budding entrepreneurs. The business training program I worked on started with teaching a personal budget and why one goes into business. It progressed into creating a budget for a new venture and establishing their own merry-go-round. A merry-go-round is a type of rotating savings and lending group popular in Kibera. Your generous gift not only allowed me to pay for my expenses to cover the trip but enabled me to commit to funding a scholarship for four secondary school girls over the next four years and covering the salary of a second Binti employee." - Clinton Wall '04

"The Haskamp Fund allowed me to work last summer with the National Park Service at Point Reyes National Seashore in Northern California. I developed creative solutions to meet the shortfall between their revenue (from Congressional appropriations, donations, grants and a small fee program) and their forecasted costs. Because of the Haskamp Fund, I helped them provide more educational programs for the public, install wildlife programs, and provide safer trails and roads." - Hannah Miller Lerman '03

"With my Haskamp Fund fellowship, I was able to spend the past summer in an internship with the International Finance Corporation, the private sector finance arm of the World Bank. I was located in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and spent the summer providing financing for small Brazilian companies that lacked alternative sources of financing. Because of the Haskamp fund, I helped several small companies gain a foothold in a difficult business environment. This will eventually grow jobs and help revitalize some extremely poverty stricken areas of Brazil." - Bret Rosen '03

"During my internship, I project managed two school moves in Watts, whichentailed managing key relationships and logistical activities between academic, construction, and infrastructure parties. This enabled a site that served 150 students to serve 500 students. I also participated in getting the Locke High School transformation rolling, a project some of you may have read about in the newspaper. I co-created busing and pre-registration processes to ensure safer and more consistent student travel and more efficient tracking of 2,000 students. Finally, I renegotiated and restructured supplier contracts that saved Green Dot more than $50,000. To provide some perspective on the Locke area, prior to Green Dot's assumption of Locke, the school had maintained an average graduation rate of approximately 24%. We know that our students are more capable than that. My efforts, combined with that of so many more, will create an environment that fosters student achievement, safety, and person growth. To me, the Haskamp Fund/fellowship represents Anderson's commitment to creating a generation of business leaders, who understand that our energy and skill-set make us uniquely able not only to change the business landscape we choose to engage, but also to act as positive change agents in our communities. My goal this summer and in the future is to embody that commitment to positive social change in the education sector." - Adam Lurie '09

"Currently, Pasadena Humane Society does not have an accurate determination of what it costs to care for each animal that comes through the shelter. This information is crucial to their fund raising efforts and budgeting process, yet heretofore they have relied only on a rough estimate of this cost. The project I undertook was to determine this cost of care.
