Having been part of the SIA community since 2019, Daniel Tan is a self-proclaimed homing pigeon that always seems to find himself returning in some capacity with the organization. Instead of relying on magnetoreception however, he has stated that his infallible ability to return lies in the incredibly talented and impact-driven community of peers and mentors the network attracts, as well as the great breadth of projects made available by partnerships with Social Purpose Organizations (SPOs) across Canada. Daniel particularly enjoys working with early-stage ventures and their founders because of their drive, tenacity, and passion for a cause, which he describes as “infections and inspiring”. This Summer, Daniel is partnered up with Rhiza Capital, a place-based impact investment firm. In the next four months, he will be supporting their investment activities and engaged in internal capacity building projects to facilitate the deployment of capital to further the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
