Join SVF:

Each fall, Social Venture Fund accepts 15-25 new investment associates. We have a strong preference for first-year MBAs or dual degree students and traditionally accept 2-5 BBAs and ~5 Law Students per year. During the two-year commitment, associates will spend an average of 10-15 hours a week conducting deal sourcing, business plan evaluation, due diligence, capacity building, marketing, and fundraising. MBA/BBA Students who are interested should attend fall information sessions held in early September or contact Hershey Pilla at Please note that Law Associate recruiting happens in Late March and will follow a separate recruitment process. 

Investment Seekers:

SVF invests in US-based, for-profit social enterprises working in the areas of Education, Food Systems & Environment, Health, and Community Development. We make minority investments ranging from $50,000 – $100,000 through preferred equity or convertible debt securities, in businesses whose products or services have been validated through customer usage, revenue, or marketplace traction. If you know of a business that meets these criteria, they may submit an executive summary and business plan. If you have any questions please contact Max Berry at
