As Sustainability Practice Lead at Village Capital, Kelly develops strategy and programming to find, train, and support entrepreneurs solving problems related to sustainability, the future of food, and agriculture. She is particularly passionate about helping underserved entrepreneurs navigate their start-ups through critical milestones and secure strategic investment. Kelly joined Village Capital from Sorenson Impact Foundation, where she worked directly with social enterprise start-ups in SIF’s global portfolio to advance new initiatives and drive growth. Over the last 10 years Kelly has worked across multiple sectors within early stage venture capital and impact investing. She continues to focus on meeting founder needs first and pushing for improved access to capital and resources in order to help underrepresented founders scale solutions to critical problems often devalued or poorly understood by mainstream economic players that affect millions of lives.
