Philadelphia’s impact sector is determined to make the city a hub for impact investing, the venture strategy for funding mission-driven businesses.
It’s good news, then, that Investors’ Circle (IC), the national network of impact investors, is on the hunt for a Philadelphia-based program associate to help develop local investor communities and investment activity in Philly, New York City and Washington, D.C.
“Currently, we have one staff person, Rebecca Price, who is coordinating six local networks and lives in Boston,” said IC Philly president Annarie Lyles in an email. “Having a staff person based in Philadelphia will hopefully help our impact angels be more visible and active in Philadelphia, and also help to grow our sister networks.”
According to an email blasted out to members, the network is making a “concerted effort” to build up a diverse pool of applicants. The deadline to apply is Jan. 27.
Additionally, Lyles said the local investment network “invested over $2 million collectively” in 2016, though the numbers haven’t been completely tallied.-30-
