“I believe that adopting sustainable policies and practices nearly always makes good business sense.”
The concept behind MaSa was born in 2013, when social impact was mainly being viewed through a philanthropic lens, or with the expectation of modest, if any, financial returns on investment.
At the time, Sarah had just left her corporate career to become a public servant, while Max was taking a break after nearly twenty years in energy. Sarah and Max met as new members of a regional volunteer board of the US Fund for UNICEF. After many conversations about how best to invest their time and resources to help make a real difference, Max and Sarah co-founded MaSa Partners in 2015 — as a for-profit entity seeking to invest in early-stage, socially responsible companies in a financially sustainable manner.
