Founder & Chair    
Mr. David Stephens

In 1997, David Stephens and a partner started OnSat Network Communications, Inc. as a way to provide affordable, useable, and openly available high-speed broadband access to underserved schools, libraries, and other institutional customers.

As a founder of OnSat Native American Services Inc., David has worked with the Navajo Nation to provide sustainable broadband Internet connections to 110 Navajo Community Centers. This connectivity brings education, economic opportunity, distance health care, e-government/community development and emergency management/public safety to Native American people no matter how remote they might be. Navajo Nation President Dr. Joe Shirley, Jr. appointed him to be Chief Advisor for Information, Communications and Technology.

For the past nine years, Mr. Stephens has served as a member of the Grameen Foundation Technology Advisory Board.
