IC Philadelphia, Investors’ Circle first local network, launched in 2007 and leads local networks in deals done, having investied $4 million into its current portfolio of companies that have gone on to raise another $35M to fuel their growth. This local network has immersed itself into the city of Philadelphia, pioneering social entrepreneurship and impacting investing and establishing an active presence across the city. The leadership and vision of John Moore, IC Philadelphia’s outgoing president, over the past three years has made much of this possible.
Moore has been a passionate promoter of impact investing in Philadelphia. He has helped to introduce and connect IC to the broader venture community, and he has seized the opportunity to create an impact investing onramp for the philanthropic community. An active angel investor who is also a Managing Partner of Robin Hood Ventures, Moore experience and leadership raised the bar on IC’s rigor and process in Philadelphia. He set higher expectations for deal quality and investment and helped the IC team develop systems to support and connect local networks as they audaciously grew from one to six local networks in three years.
