Our Mission

While the amount of impact investment capital is increasing rapidly, uniform access to that capital is not. For that to improve, new low-cost, high-efficiency investment models are needed to push money and business resources out to entrepreneurial teams in remote regions and underserved communities. Assembling, training, and empowering diverse investment teams for this purpose is the core mission of the Kirchner Food Fellowship.
