REBECCA F. LIPSEY

PRESIDENT & CEO, MIAMI FOUNDATION, MIAMI

Lipsey is a social entrepreneur and former policymaker focused on building stronger, more equitable cities. She started Radical Partners as a social-impact accelerator that incubates ventures that solve civic and community challenges, ranging from sea-level rise to educational equity. Over the past five years, Radical Partners has invested in the growth of 100 social impact ventures, 10 of which have reached $1 million in revenue. Earlier this year, she took over leadership of the Miami Foundation, a community foundation that supports non-profits and other groups.
