Executive Director, Social Sector Accelerator

Teresa leads the Social Sector Accelerator, a subsidiary of the Counterpart Network. The Accelerator takes Counterpart International’s proven capacity building approach even farther by acting as an incubator for social sector organizations worldwide.

“The impact of the social sector is often underestimated and as a result, organizations with enormous potential are under-supported. These groups are integral to achieving social good and by growing their capacity to meet new challenges, we can accelerate their ability to achieve their missions.”
