Published on: 15th July, 2022

Michael Tefula, Head of Finance at CIRCA5000, having been a venture capitalist for many years with Downing Ventures.

In this episode, Michael shares his insight on how a combination of entrepreneurial leanings and a family focus on the importance of education, led to him joining CIRCA5000, after some time as a venture investor. We learn how Michael’s career builds upon  a foundational period with Deloitte, authorship of three books on education and professional development, and why founder resourcefulness is an important thing. We also learn more about  CIRCA5000 and their mission to make impact investing more accessible, something that lured Michael into an operator role at a startup.
