SJF Institute is pleased to announce a strategic merger with Investors’ Circle. This merger is an exciting opportunity to accelerate the connections between high-caliber impact entrepreneurs and values-led investors.
While SJF Institute has been finding, building, and nurturing a network of high growth impact entrepreneurs over the past decade, Investors’ Circle has been building and cultivating a network of impact investors since 1992. Merging the energies and resources of the two organizations will serve to more efficiently and effectively unleash the power of the impact investing marketplace, by increasing entrepreneurs’ access to capital, resources and networks, and provide more opportunities for collaboration among impact investors.
The merger creates synergy and leverage in management, as well. Effective July 1, 2011, SJF Institute has taken over management and governance roles for Investors’ Circle. Bonny Moellenbrock, Executive Director of SJF Institute, has assumed executive leadership of Investors’ Circle. Two of Investors’ Circle’s former board members will serve on SJF Institute’s board, and Suzanne Biegel – Investors’ Circle Acting CEO and longtime member – will transition to serve on Investors’ Circle Advisory Board.
We sincerely thank you for being part of our efforts to date, and look forward to continuing to work with you to build the impact economy. Stay tuned for exciting things to come!
