Village Capital Partner: Invested Development

Sarah is 23 years old and from Denver, Colorado. She recently graduated from Dartmouth College with a degree in Economics modified with Engineering, with a concentration in Developing Economics and Finance. At Dartmouth, Sarah was a member of the Varsity Women’s Soccer team for two years, where she learned of an amazing organization called GrassrootSoccer (“GRS”), a global non-profit that uses soccer as a means of engaging youth and providing them with the knowledge and life-skills to live HIV free. Sarah had the opportunity to complete two separate internships with GRS in Khayelitsha and Port Elizabeth, South Africa, where she developed a passion for social entrepreneurship and international development. Since graduating college, she has been working for an investment consulting firm in Boston, which provides consulting and investment oversight services to a wide array of foundation, institutional, sovereign and private family clients. This experience has shown her the power and importance of investing and has given her valuable knowledge of investing in a wide range of asset classes and markets. Sarah has grown committed to pursuing a career in impact investing because she believes that finding creative ways of engaging private markets to solve social problems historically addressed through philanthropy will ultimately deliver more powerful, sustainable solutions. Sarah hopes to use the Frontier Market Scouts program to launch a career in the impact investing space.
