Creating pathways to prosperity.
Kristen Green is a Senior Portfolio Associate, supporting REDF’s national social enterprise portfolio in a myriad of ways, including conducting research, developing tools, executing due diligence, and crafting smart strategies. Based in the Los Angeles office, Kristen found out about REDF when she was studying for her MS in social entrepreneurship. Inspired by Jed Emerson’s writings on impact investing and blended value, she was instantly fascinated by the intermediary role that REDF plays, and wanted to be a part of an organization that helps the social enterprise field grow and prosper. Prior to joining REDF Kristen worked at Chrysalis, a current REDF portfolio grantee. Kristen received a B.A. in Political Science with a minor in Urban Studies, from Loyola Marymount University. She also holds a M.S. in Social Entrepreneurship from University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business. In her free time, you can find Kristen reading, volunteering at her local animal rescue or visiting the park with Ms. Lois, her beloved retired greyhound.
