Investment Associate (Brooklyn or Denver)

Maycomb Capital

Maycomb Capital is a pioneering impact investing platform. We provide financing to fund strategies and enterprises that transform communities. At Maycomb, we drive capital toward effective solutions for underserved communities, using data and rigorous analysis to guide our decisions. We identify scalable and sustainable paths to positive change, tackling entrenched social and economic challenges. By harnessing the scale, expertise, and risk tolerance of the private sector in service of the public good, we’re demonstrating what’s possible with mission-focused, flexible capital.

Maycomb’s investors include some of the nation’s leading, mission-aligned family offices, corporations, and foundations. We are home to a variety of impact debt vehicles, including our flagship debt fund, the Community Outcomes Fund, our place-based debt fund, the Outcomes Finance Accelerator Fund, and our custom strategies.

The Community Outcomes Fund & Outcomes Finance Accelerator Fund

At the core of our work is a commitment to expanding access to economic opportunity for low-income families and individuals. Despite significant public spending, large swaths of individuals and families find themselves in a cycle of poverty and lack access to quality education, jobs, or other opportunities to thrive. Policy decisions are often disconnected from the evidence of what works and too often, government dollars are not aligned with the intended outcomes. By building public-private partnerships that align government spending with outcomes in communities, we bring accountability and transparency to services. In practice, this means early education that prepares children for kindergarten, help for infants and families to achieve better health outcomes, and training that leads to well-paying, in-demand careers.

The Investment Associate will support both the Community Outcomes Fund and the Outcomes Finance Accelerator Fund, a place-based fund investing in Colorado and Utah.
