Thank You, Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs!

Many thanks to the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE), and particularly Randall Kempner and Jenny Everett,  for the heaps of support they’ve provided to First Access over the last few months as we finalized our business plan and began to assemble a team. Nicole worked on several consulting projects for ANDE while setting up the foundations of First Access, including a policy and advocacy strategy, a worldwide survey of talent and compensation practices among impact investors, and the assembly of toolkits for local ANDE chapters. ANDE’s team in DC and its fantastic network of contacts - working in public, private and non-profit promotion of entrepreneurship and impact investing around the world - has provided invaluable advice to First Access, and we are very grateful!
