The California Bay Area has a well-developed impact investing ecosystem. But trace any one initiative, and chances are it will lead back to Kristin Hull. A Bay Area native and former educator, Hull drew on her insights from education, grad school and the family investment business to become an influential voice and leader in the impact field. She is a founder of HUB Oakland, an angel investor and an outspoken champion of women and entrepreneurs of color. We spoke recently with Kristin about her multi-pronged approach to investing for change.
