Rebecca Colby is an Associate Director at Social Finance, supporting the impact advisory services and impact investing teams.

Before joining Social Finance, Rebecca served as Chief of Staff at a financial inclusion startup in Gaborone, Botswana. She also partnered with a social enterprise in Sierra Leone to improve income and sustainability for local subsistence farmers. Previously, Rebecca worked as an aerospace engineer; designing, building, and testing first-of-their-kind aircraft such as Richard Branson’s SpaceShipTwo and Stratolaunch (the largest airplane in the world by wingspan).

Rebecca holds an MBA from Stanford Graduate School of Business with a Certificate in Public Management and Social Innovation and a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

I love collaborating with our incredible teams and partners at Social Finance, combining experience ranging from engineering to social work to government to solve the most important problems facing our communities.
