Sara Kemppainen is in charge of Special Projects at Fifty Years. She is particularly interested in supporting founders solving complex problems that are traditionally overlooked by investors. She led the development of Repro Grants, a “fast grants” program to accelerate high-risk, high-reward research in the chronically underfunded field of women’s reproductive health. Before joining Fifty Years, Sara was the Head of Program at Slush. She is also the founder of Women in Innovation and Leadership, a professional network that promotes personal growth, collaboration, and gender equality.
