Hannah studied socio-economic policy in Latin America at Wesleyan University. After college, she worked for a nonprofit in Peru, and then came back to the U.S. to do nonprofit consulting. In performing this work, Hannah realized the challenges of the nonprofit sector, and found what Village Capital was doing could make a big impact and improve people’s lives.
There’s a lot of work to keep Hannah busy. For one, Hannah recruits entrepreneurs to apply for Village Capital’s Energy Program—and selects participants. She also finds mentors and investors to work with them during the program, and thinks of ways Village Capital can support these companies moving forward to ensure their ultimate success.
“I’ve found that my managers really take my opinions and insights into consideration. I think what makes Village Capital unique is the focus and genuine desire to help me achieve my professional development goals.”
“The people I work with are smart and hardworking. I learn from them every day, and they are incredibly supportive. Coming into work surrounded by that kind of energy and passion—and knowing I can always go to someone for help or grab lunch—really makes Village Capital special.”
