APPENDIX: Acknowledgements

A Collaborative Project

This E-Guide was made possible by a grant to the Toniic Institute from the Rockefeller Foundation. We especially thank Margot Brandenburg and Brinda Ganguly for their support and guidance.

The Toniic Institute commissioned CASE i3 to help create this E-Guide in early 2012. The guide is a co-creation of Cathy Clark, Director of CASE i3, Lisa Kleissner, Co-Founder of Toniic, Morgan Simon, Co-Founder and CEO of Toniic from inception through May 2013, and Stephanie Cohn Rupp, CEO of Toniic from June 2013. Bonny Moellenbrock, Executive Director of Investors’ Circle, co-authored the regional guide to investing in the US.
