Fund Team Members

Tarrson Fund Members serve as scouts and associates, performing critical sourcing, diligence, and portfolio management functions. Team members hail from all sectors and receive foundational training in impact investing from our Impact Investor-in-Residence, Priya Parrish, when they join the Fund.

Academic Advisors

Academic advisors provide strategic, tactical, and operational guidance to the Tarrson Fund. From leading Booth’s impact investing and social entrepreneurship courses to facilitating co-curricular training in impact investing, academic advisors empower students to translate investment theory into practice on the Fund and vice versa.
