Associate Director / Senior Associate of Health

Located in Washington, DC

Quantified Ventures is an impact investing and social enterprise advisory firm. Through a process of identification, due diligence, and structuring, we design outcomes-based financial transactions for clients, helping to deploy impact capital to scale proven social and environmental solutions. We operate in three primary areas: Environment, Health, and Education/Workforce Development.

The large and growing market for impact investment capital challenges the notion that there has to be a trade-off between financial and social returns. By deploying impact capital to social enterprises that are both demonstrating positive impact and achieving sustainability, we can build capacity to address the world’s most pressing challenges. At Quantified Ventures, we simplify access to impact capital to scale solutions and interventions that drive true social change through innovative financing mechanisms.

 

The Health Team at Quantified Ventures

We work with nonprofit organizations, entrepreneurs, health plans, health systems, and governments who demonstrate capacity for transformative social good, helping them to tap into the financial resources needed to sufficiently scale operations and deliver meaningful impact. We do this primarily through Pay for Success (PFS), also known as Social Impact Bond (SIB), transactions.

Our PFS service offering in health involves working with private and nonprofit service providers, Medicare and Medicaid health plans, health systems, large employers, and governments to design and execute PFS projects, from due diligence through project close, including:

  • Prospect due diligence: Analyzing business operations, target markets, working experience, growth strategy, and other areas before determining whether to work with a prospect.
  • Feasibility assessments: Ensuring service provider and payor readiness to participate in outcomes-based contracts.
  • Regulatory and compliance analysis: In the government-sponsored healthcare space, ensuring that financial transactions are fully compliant with State and, in some cases, Federal regulations is vital in mitigating investor and project risk.
  • Project management and transaction structuring: Moving multiple stakeholders through our methodology while being attentive, responsive, and flexible to their individual needs is a requirement to efficiently structure a transaction. 
  • Evaluation design: Determining with the stakeholders the desired level of rigor to evaluate the effectiveness of the project. Managing the independent evaluation designer to project timeline and expectations is expected.
  • Financial modeling and outcomes pricing: Developing a robust budget required to enable scale and project success is an early step that we conduct with our service provider clients. Layering on projected outcomes, timelines, outcomes effect sizes, and projected cost savings leveraging payor historical data to establish baselines is required for a robust, and investor-grade transaction model.
  • Capital raising: We help our clients develop robust growth plans, prioritize and reach out to potential investors, and advise on term negotiations with the goal of raising the required capital to scale interventions and social impact.
  • Post-project launch management: Once the capital is secured, the project begins. While much of Quantified Ventures’ work is related to structuring investable projects, there is a large role that we play in ensuring the ongoing success of the project by managing to contract and evaluation model while knowing when to adjust course to maximize the likelihood of achieving outcomes.
