Finance for Impact

This summer I’m interning at Flat World Partners, an impact investing firm. I’m working to plan the build- and roll-out of Exponential, their proprietary ESG impact investing analytics and reporting platform. While I am on the Exponential team, I also have the opportunity to work with the advisory and alternative investment platform arms of the firm.

As a relatively small organization with a sole focus on impact, Flat World tends to stand out. Their focus on stakeholder impact investing education alone is laudable. The team writes weekly newsletters on timely subjects, and integrates financial concepts with broader sociopolitical contexts. This precise commitment to diverse perspectives keeps the work environment and the work itself meaningful.

Thanks for reading! I hope to check in again in the upcoming weeks.
