After a busy summer that included the official launch of our BETA initiative, we aren’t ready to slow down. This fall we continued our growth by opening our first in-country field office and welcomed a new team member.
Sean Smith, our Investment Analyst, has moved to Nairobi, Kenya, to open the first Invested Development outside of Boston. Sean will continue to source pipeline from around the world, but will add even deeper insight into the needs of the underserved on the Continent and the creative start-ups addressing them. If you’re in Greater Nairobi and would like to meet up with Sean, please reach out to us on Twitter. Watch out for a post in the coming weeks from Sean on this blog as he gets settled and learns more about the innovation that’s stirring in Nairobi.
Back here in Boston, we’re very pleased to announce the addition of Alex Bashian to the Invested Development team. Alex joins us as the Senior Investment Analyst after several years of experience in finance and clean technology. He is a graduate of Columbia University’s esteemed MPA program in International Energy and Economic Policy, a recovering Wall Street analyst, and an experienced alternative energy consultant and advisor. We couldn’t be more excited about having him on board.
In addition to our growing team and global presence, we have some great things planned for the upcoming quarter. Make sure to keep up with us on Twitter and subscribe to our blog to stay updated with all the latest news. Thanks for your continued support of Invested Development.
