In the first quarter of each year, Quarterback looks to the cutting edge of social innovation to find organizations that can benefit from our unique brand of impact investing.  We bring highly skilled human capital to take on organization’s most pressing challenges and significant opportunities.  So here’s our question to you: who should we work with?
