ANDE: Director of Strategic Development

The Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE)

The Aspen Institute is an educational and policy studies organization based in Washington, DC. Its mission is to foster leadership based on enduring values and to provide a nonpartisan venue for dealing with critical issues. The Institute has campuses in Aspen, Colorado, and on the Wye River on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. It also maintains offices in New York City and has an international network of partners.

The Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE)

The Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) is a program within the Aspen Institute. ANDE is a global membership network of organizations that propel entrepreneurship in emerging markets. ANDE members provide critical financial, educational, and business support services to small and growing businesses (SGBs) based on the conviction that SGBs will create jobs, stimulate long-term economic growth, and produce environmental and social benefits. Ultimately, we believe that SGBs can help lift countries out of poverty. Launched with 34 members in 2009, ANDE now comprises over 250 members who collectively operate in more than 150 countries.

ANDE is looking for a Director of Strategic Development, based in our Washington, DC office.

Position Description

You think of yourself as a philanthropic jack of all trades. You’ve been in the trenches of grant writing and reporting and have beat the pavement of donor development, but what you like best about development is bringing it all together into strategy. You know fundraising isn’t about creative spin but rather understanding organizational priorities and finding alignment with partners. You know data is your friend – and enjoy the puzzle piecing of budget creation, as well as running trends and analytics to chart your future course. And you know that telling a good story is essential to building partnerships. Most of all, you’re excited to use your fundraising and communications expertise to help a growing organization help address poverty in developing countries.

The Director of Strategic Development will report to the Executive Director of ANDE and is responsible for leading all aspects of the development function to secure significant financial resources to achieve ANDE’s goals. The development function currently includes corporate, government and foundation relations, training ANDE staff on fundraising efforts, and managing a development associate. The Director will also lead external communications efforts with support from a communications associate and an external consultant to achieve annual communications goals.

The Director will be a part of the ANDE Senior Leadership team and work closely with the Executive Director and ANDE’s Executive Committee, the global advisory body of executive leaders representing ANDE member organizations. The Director will manage the Fundraising and Outreach Subcommittee of the Executive Committee.

Your day might start on a call with a prospective donor in Europe who is interested in learning more about ANDE’s role in supporting talent development for youth in Africa. That would likely be followed by a meeting with the Executive Director to forecast revenues for the next fiscal year. Your afternoon might entail coaching staff on the best way to approach a potential local donor to finance an industry convening in Mexico. Then you might end your day brainstorming ways to monetize ANDE’s research offerings to drive greater revenue in Brazil. The very next day may require you to travel to London to attend a closed-door session on the role business accelerators have on small business growth in with a consortium of foundation representatives. Each day will be different, and this role will provide a wide variety of opportunities to engage with experts at the cross section of philanthropy, entrepreneurship and international development.

VILLAGE CAPITAL: Director of Finance and Operations

Village Capital

The way we invest in ideas is broken. Nearly half of all venture capital in the world is invested in just three US states. In 2016, women received just 2% of venture capital funding. In the US, less than 1% goes to African American and Latino entrepreneurs. And far too little capital is going to companies who are solving significant global challenges in environmental sustainability and economic opportunity.

At Village Capital, we’re building a different system. Over the last seven years, our transparent approach to investing has changed the conversation. We’ve made more than 70 early stage investments to date around the world in companies focused on solutions in energy, financial inclusion, health, agriculture, education and more. 90% of our portfolio is based outside Silicon Valley, New York, and Boston; 38% is women-led, and 20% is run by African American and Latino entrepreneurs. To date, 90% of these ventures are still operating, and a dozen have already exited profitably.

Our team is expanding and we’re looking for a Director of Finance and Operations to manage the financial, administration and operational systems that enable Village Capital to successfully focus on its mission to find, train and invest in companies solving some of the world’s biggest challenges.

IDF: Operating Partner

Imago Dei Fund


The Imago Dei Fund (“IDF”) is a private grant-making foundation that dedicates its resources to bringing about a more just, free, and sustainable world. Founded in 2009 by Emily and Ross Jones, IDF has established itself in the philanthropic landscape as a faith-inspired foundation working across faith and secular lines to fund social change, enter into partnerships to expand the impact of our philanthropic investments, and catalyze movements which are transforming the deeper roots of injustice and working to restore wholeness to our world.

We seek to do our part as a funder to not just support individual non-profit organizations but also to partner to create greater collective impact across different sectors.

With the aim of both deepening and widening the foundation’s philanthropic impact within the larger movements/ sectors within which we fund, we are seeking to build out a more robust internal team by adopting a “partner- ship” organizational structure to segment our grantmaking with lead Program Partners overseeing and proac- tively managing separate (yet overlapping) portfolios (“nodes”) within the foundation’s larger portfolio.


The Operating Partner is responsible for managing IDF’s daily operations including office and systems man- agement, board administration and all grants administration. Primarily an internal-facing position, the Operating Partner develops operational and grants management processes that support staff, board, and grantee partners to work effectively and collaboratively together. S/he is a highly motivated, problem-solving, solution-oriented self-starter who can hit the ground running. S/he will play a lead role in creating and maintaining the organiza- tional systems which enable a creative and collaborative work culture for the entire staff.

In partnership with the Program and Founding Partners, s/he will take the lead in developing a 3-year plan for operations based on a new partnership organizational structure with segmented grantmaking into multiple “nodes” (6+/-), each led by a Program Partner who has ownership/responsibility for proactively building out each portfolio and cultivating grantee and funding partnerships. S/he will work with the Founding Partners to create

an espirit de corps which fosters a sense of shared purpose, team-building, ongoing learning, thought partner- ship across program sectors, high professional standards, and creative approaches to partnering with and sup- porting grantee partners to advance larger goals. S/he will create and manage a master calendar of team meet- ings including: regular operations and program team meetings, occasional all-staff team-building meetings, and monthly board meetings. S/he will hire new staff including a Grants Manager. S/he will manage an operations team which will include part-time IT and administrative staff and outsourced operational resources as needed. S/he will also liaise with the Founding Partners’ family office, Castle Rock Associates (CRA) around financial planning and tax-related matters.

TONIIC: Chief Financial Officer


Toniic is a global network of action-oriented impact investors: high net worth individuals, family offices, foundations, and endowments. Toniic increases the velocity of money and services into impact investing to address global challenges. Toniic’s members commit to discover, evaluate, nurture and invest in enterprises, funds, and other financial products that are changing the world for the better.

Toniic members are active impact investors, investing in early stage direct deals, in one or more asset classes and/or take an impact portfolio approach. Toniic is in the process of expanding its global presence significantly, while also going deeper with its current members to enhance their investment practice, and by extension, their potential for impact. The core mission of Toniic is to empower impact investors.

Toniic’s values are integral to its engagement in the world with its members and business partners:
• Entrepreneurial & optimistic
• Action-oriented
• Global & local
• Open & collaborative

We also make our own business decisions with concern for people and planet. We seek to be the kind of business our members would invest in were we structured as a “for profit.” While our legal structure (and accordingly tax and accounting) is non-profit, the culture of the Toniic team is high performance and focused on measurable impact, and the senior team comes from the entrepreneurial for-profit world. We seek a second in command/CFO who will complement our team and fit with our hard-charging, hands-on, missiondriven culture.

The CEO needs to spend more time on relationships and activities external to the team. He seeks a strong operational “right-hand person” as a partner to support Toniic’s growth.

Duties and Responsibilities
Reporting to the CEO, the CFO will define the processes and implement the infrastructure and systems needed to support substantial growth over the next five years. She or he will continue to build and manage effective and streamlined financial/administrative systems, including financial, accounting, information technology, human resources, and legal. Specific responsibilities will include:

• Serve as “second in command” of small but growing global team. • Coordinate the annual operations plan and budget
• Manage an accounting services provider to prepare and present monthly Statements of Financial Activity and Cash Flow forecasts, as well as the annual 990 tax return
• Create systems that provide the organization with a monthly dashboard of KPIs, quick access to financial information, “what if” analysis and strategic budgeting.
• Manage the current technology infrastructure and scope out and deliver the next level of information technology, which will include merger of several distinct member-facing systems, and which will either require management of outsourced custom software development, or customization and integration of existing products.
• Working in partnership with the CEO and Regional Managing Directors, manage the strategic three year plan and implement new processes and approaches to achieve it
• Provide global staff strong operational control; bridge global regional operations to balance need for regional autonomy with need for global process consistency
• Work with the Board of Directors: prepare and present financial and operating results to the Board at quarterly meetings and serve on Board committees as required

Skills / Experience
The CFO will have at least five to eight years of professional experience with both for-profit and non-profit organizations, along with a Bachelor’s degree (MBA preferred) in Business, Management or Finance.

Three broad categories of skills are desired for this role: financial, technology and operational skills.Given the seniority of the position and the breadth of skills desired, there is the potential to revise the (admittedly lean) organizational design to complement the strengths of the chosen individual, so a strong candidate lacking depth in one of the skillsets will nevertheless be seriously considered. Experience with impact investing is desired but not required, but Toniic is an organization driven by the social and planetary values of its members and staff, so a desire to work within a “values-driven” organization is critical. The position is ideal for the mid-career professional with experience leading a larger organization for whom the greatest priority is now to find work which makes a positive impact in the world. Additional requirements are:

• Results orientation -- Track record of achieving goals and a bottom-line focus; high level of business acumen including successful P&L management combined with the willingness to be more hands-on that comes with a smaller organization. Enjoys working hard, looks for challenges and exhibits attention to detail.
• Systems and Process Thinker --ability to implement and inspire adherence to systems necessary to support scaling the business
• Soft Skills—Emotional intelligence and ability to connect with staff, Board and Members; capacity to both encourage and enforce accountability.
• General Management—thorough understanding of finance and information technology; experience with the full range of business functions and systems, including strategic development and planning, budgeting, business analysis, finance, information systems, human resources, and marketing
• Ability to travel regionally and internationally
• Ability to bring the level of entrepreneurship, creativity, commitment, time, patience, and humor it takes to work with an evolving and growing organization

To Apply
Send resume, salary history, and a cover letter that includes or attaches a personal statement of why the role appeals and what you would bring to it. Send to with the subject “Application for Toniic CFO”.
