Stephanie Cohn-Rupp

Managing Director, Impact Investing

What matters most to me is to work with teams, families and organizations who strive to do what is right by people and planet - even if this proves difficult or requires entering uncharted territories. I have found exactly that at Threshold Group.

Stephanie Cohn Rupp brings more than 17 years of experience in international impact investing including impact fund design and implementation, microfinance, and crowd funding. As the former CEO of Toniic, she was responsible for scaling the organization from 35 to over 300 families and foundations worldwide – growing the presence of this global action community in the US, Canada, Europe, Middle East, Australia and South Africa. She is head of Impact Investing at Threshold Group, and works closely with the firm’s CIO, Ron Albahary on investment philosophy and overall Impact strategy. Her extensive experience spans the global ecosystem of impact, and brings a unique and multifaceted toolkit of skills in sourcing, evaluating and measuring opportunities from both investment and impact perspectives. In addition to her critical role in Impact - Stephanie is the head of Threshold Group's burgeoning San Francisco office, growing our local presence in the Bay Area.
