Minerva Capital Group Founder and CEO Jocelyn Cortez-Young ’07 understands what it takes to drive and change a market at the same time.

Cortez-Young focuses on investments that serve a dual purpose: to activate social change in Latin America and to turn a profit. With a focus on innovation in small– to medium–sized companies, she seeks to rectify the gender parity through smart investing.

While studying at Kellogg, Cortez had ample opportunity to broaden her network and experience other cultures. Taking courses in the Kellogg Executive MBA Global Network allowed her to better understand some of the markets in which she would later invest, as well as make connections with peers from across the world.

“Kellogg has been a tremendous part of my professional growth and my personal growth,” Cortez-Young said.
