About

Bulbul Gupta has 20 years experience in funding and advising entrepreneurs, advancing quality jobs, and growing the field of impact investing for equity and inclusion. For her, impact investing “ensures that we can prioritize social, environmental, and racial justice, and align our dollars with our values to create the world we want to live in.”

Previously, she was the Founding Advisor of Socos Labs, led Entrepreneurship & Impact Investing at the Clinton Global Initiative, was a Global Entrepreneurship Policy Advisor to the Clinton Campaign, and worked with The Asia Foundation, USAID Asia Bureau, Global Development Alliance, and MacArthur Foundation. In 2013 she helped launch the White House National Advisory Board on Impact Investing.

She has been an adjunct lecturer in Social Innovation & Impact Investing at both NYU and Hult International Business School.

She says “It’s been refreshing to see many impact investors reflect on ensuring that social, racial, and environmental justice is indeed centered in their investment approaches. I believe for us to truly differentiate and realize the full potential of this still new and growing field, we need to move more impact investors to think impact-first to create a better world. I’m excited to join forces with Adair Morse, Julia Sze, and Haas to invest in the emerging talent we need to help this field realize its potential better.”
