At Georgetown, I was given the reigns for the Social Innovation and Public Service (SIPS) Fund, a $1.5 million endowment-driven venture fund that invests in student projects and companies. When I came in, it was a leaky-ship: of the $46,000 available each year to grant and invest, only $2000 had been granted to 2 students in its inaugural year. Over the course of two years, I built a team of 15 associates to manage finances, partnerships, applications & pipelines, as well as a solutions team to assist the community of projects and companies after they are in our portfolio. We rolled our partnerships with McKinsey to help incubate and measure impacts of our grantees’ projects as well as a Summer Scholarship program for students serving in government, non-profits, and NGOs. When I left in 2016, we received 180 applicants of which we supported 17. $45,000 in grants were awarded for socially-driven ventures and projects.
