(3BL Media) March 26, 2012 - Angels, fund managers, wealth advisors, VCs and other accredited investors are set to gather in San Francisco April 22-24 to network, share deal flow and hear vetted pitches from 15 great for-profit "impact" entrepreneurs. They will also get what is sure to be an inspiring talk from Keynote Speaker, Lisa Hall.  Lisa leads Calvert Foundation as President and CEO, a post she assumed in January 2011. Lisa has nearly 25 years of industry experience, having held multiple policy and financial posts. When Lisa joined Calvert Foundation in 2005, she took on management of a $76 million loan portfolio as Chief Lending Officer. Over the years, Lisa more than doubled that portfolio to nearly $190 million, while keeping losses under 1.2 percent during one of the most economically challenging periods in recent history.

Calvert Foundation’s mission is to maximize the flow of capital to disadvantaged communities in order to create a more equitable and sustainable society. By creating innovative financial products and services, we have made it possible for everyday people, not just institutions, to participate in financial instruments that directly serve communities. It’s a win-win. You can lift people out of poverty through an investment that also earns a financial return.

Lisa has held positions in real estate and community development finance with the Enterprise Foundation, JP Morgan Chase and Travelers Insurance. She holds a BS in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from Harvard University. In 2003, Lisa participated in the American Marshall Memorial Fellowship, a travel program for emerging leaders from the US and Europe. Lisa serves on the Boards of The Funders’ Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities, the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs and the Tides Network.

Lisa has been featured in Forbes, the Washington Post, and dozens of other publications and has spoken at conferences including the annual meeting of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, SOCAP, Opportunity Finance Network, and Sustainatopia, and participated in summits at the White House and San Francisco Federal Reserve. She was recently dubbed an “Innovator in Action” by Take Part/Skoll World Forum. 

 

Investors’ Circle is the largest and oldest network of angel investors, venture capitalists, foundations and family offices that are using private capital to promote the transition to a sustainable economy. IC has facilitated the flow of $150 million into 230 companies and funds dedicated to impact.
