Madeleine is a sophomore at Georgetown University, studying Finance and Management. In her free time, she works for the Hilltop Microfinance Initiative (HMFI), which is a nonprofit organization that distributes small business loans to marginalized entrepreneurs in the Washington D.C. area, as the Head of Grant Writing and Research. Madeleine also spent this past semester working for Small Enterprise Assistance Funds (SEAF), which is an international fund manager that makes private equity investments in small to medium sized enterprises located in emerging markets. Through her work for HMFI and SEAF, Madeleine developed an interest in increasing equitable access to capital, and she is excited to a play a part in helping Voyager Space Holdings foster a healthy capital ecosystem within the space industry.
Originally from a small town in upstate New York, Madeleine worked at her family’s small aerospace company this past summer. Her work in the factory as an assemblywoman paired with her work in the finance department inspired an interest in aerospace within her, and she is fascinated by aerospace business processes. Madeleine is so excited and honored to pursue her interest in aerospace as an intern at Voyager Space Holdings and as a Brooke Owens Fellow.
